George Pelham has just released a beautifully stripped back acoustic version of his latest single, Be Myself. Of the track, the singer-songwriter has said, “I recorded this in the middle of lockdown in my tiny garden shed. This song was originally written on an acoustic guitar and had a beachy acoustic feel to it, until it turned into something quite full on and Motown-inspired, so this acoustic version is how the song sounded before that.” George has also revealed a live performance video as part of his series, The Gym Sessions which can be seen below.
The original version of Be Myself was added straight into Spotify’s New Pop UK playlist, and has hit 15k streams on the streaming platform. The official music video was shot and directed by Lindsey Henderson during the first few days after the country went into lockdown, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It sees George take on three very different personas, alongside his true self performing the song. Watch the video here.
In support of George’s last single release Not Tonight,the young Londoner decided to put his own unique twist on posting song covers. He posted a different cover wearing a different suit every day for 30 days, on creative social media platform TikTok. George’s debut single What A Time To Be Alive has amassed 777k streams on Spotify. The video can be viewed here.
