Celeste wins BBC Sound of 2020 poll, releases new single ‘Stop This Flame’

“A once-in-a-generation talent … the finest British soul singer to emerge in years” – NME

Still basking in the glow of her recent announcement as the winner of the 2020 BRITs Rising Star award, and having today been hailed the winner of the prestigious BBC Sound of 2020 poll, ascendant soul singer Celeste releases her incendiary new single ‘Stop This Flame’. The rousing track – out now on Polydor Records – is the British-Jamaican artist’s first taste of new music in what is set to be a very busy year, with the BRITs win landing her a prestigious performance at the upcoming ceremony on February 18th, as part of the live television broadcast. Following the BRIT Awards Celeste will head back out on tour with UK singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka in March ahead of her biggest UK and European headline shows to date the following month, including a night at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on Wednesday April 29th.

“In essence, Stop This Flame is a song about seeing it through to the end,”Celeste reveals. “Whether it’s about not letting go of love, not letting go of a dream or stridently coming through some form of adversity. The song has always evoked those feelings within me.”
