Delilah Montagu Releases Brand New Single “Us”
November 13, 2020
22 yr old London based artist Delilah Montagu today releases her brand new single Us, on Columbia Records/Epic Records USA. The single has a spread of global New Music Friday and New Music Daily playlists with Spotify and Apple on launch along with Apple’s Todays Easy Hits, Mellow Days, Todays Acoustic & New in Pop.
Completely autobiographical, Us eloquently documents the rebuilding of the relationship with her now girlfriend. “If it can’t be us, I’d rather be alone”, sings Montagu on the new cut, which was written and recorded entirely remotely throughout lockdown alongside acclaimed producer Robin Hannibal (Rhye, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak). The single continues to trace Delilah’s effortless ability to wear her heart on her sleeve, releasing music brimmed with passion and honesty.
Speaking about Us Delilah said, “Us is the most truthful song I’ve ever written about my relationship. It is scary being so honest and vulnerable about how I feel about another person, but I’m glad it is coming out through my music!”
Us follows the releases of Delilah’s debut single Version Of Me – a fearless autobiographical story of self discovery – and previous single Loud – an empowering anthem to inspire pride – , both of which garnered instant critical acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times Culture, i-D, The Independent, Wonderland, Numero, The Guardian and L’Officiel to name a few.
Watch the official video for Loud, directed by Margot Bowman, here. The official video for Version Of Me was directed by Florence Kosky. It was captured entirely remotely, and you can watch that here.
Delilah also recently shared a live guitar version of Loud, showcasing her talents not only as a singer-songwriter, but also her ability to create music in whatever form she feels fit. You can watch that here, plus the Shura remix of the single here.
Lauded by critics for her fearless lyricism and raw musicianship, Delilah is a true artist on the rise, filled with boundless integrity and prowess, poised to become your new favourite for 2021.
Inspired by artists such as Leonard Cohen, Carole King, Bon Iver, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and James Blake, Delilah is today finding complete power in her own voice as she unashamedly shares her love for her girlfriend online, takes the reins on the creative processes and becomes the driving force in her relationships. And, having battled addiction, heartbreak and shame in the past, Delilah hopes that perhaps her newfound honest vulnerability might help others eradicate their own fears too.
