The two-time BRIT Award winner BECKY HILL, who has amassed over 7 billion streams to date and a growing catalogue of classic chart hits, today enters an exciting new chapter in her career with ‘Side Effects’, her first new release of 2023.
‘Side Effects’ is a real statement of intent for the year ahead. Becky’s powerhouse soulful vocals provide the star quality to a song which heightens her huge talent for uniting instantly addictive pop hooks with electrifying dance electronica. The song’s lyrics add a layer of relatability as it captures the ‘side effects’ of being held back by the ghosts of an old relationship when all you want to do is move on.
Becky wrote and releases ‘Side Effects’ with friend and key collaborator, Lewis Thompson with whom she has a prolific creative partnership (the pair previously co-writing Becky’s huge hits with David Guetta ‘Remember’ and ‘Crazy What Love Can Do’ also with David Guetta and Ella Henderson) plus producer Jon Shave and long-term collaborators, Karen Pooleand and MNEK, who also provides backing vocals.
‘Side Effects’ is accompanied by a stunning official video, which was directed by KC Locke (Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, David Guetta). It follows Becky Hill as she embarks upon an epic journey of escape from the lingering side effects of a toxic relationship.
Becky says, “I haven’t released a solo record in over a year, so coming out the door after a second BRIT win feels very exciting! I’m playing the UK’s best festivals this year and I can’t wait for people to have a new song to sing along with me. ‘Side Effects’ has been made with my favourite people in the industry and this one really feels like the beginning of my new chapter in my artistry. Album two here we come.”
