Sheffield indie-pop newcomer Frankie Beetlestone has shared his new single ‘Cannonball’, out now on Distiller Records. Hazy guitar chords layer over a steady electronic beat with Frankie’s soft, conversational tones briefly breaking into a playful, rapped verse. Listen here and watch the video here.

Speaking about the single, Frankie says: “Cannonball is a song about trying to replace a toxic ex. It’s natural to compare a current relationship to previous ones, but I think a lot of people have THAT ONE person from their past. A person who has the potential to destroy whatever they’ve got going on in the present. “Cannonball” is a metaphor for that person. It’s also a reference to Oasis.”

Frankie’s anthems-in-the-making take an idiosyncratic, preposterously charismatic view of society, youth, love and the general notion of being alive right now, while always keeping one eye on the future. His influences are weaved so intricately into his own innovative and genre-defying sound that they only really jump out when you know what they are. Among these are The Style Council, Talking Heads and INXS, as well as Motown and Oasis, both of which were played around the household when Frankie was growing up.

Frankie continues to prove himself as one of the most exciting new artists to watch in 2023, with his own take on self-produced bedroom pop. Key tastemaker support includes Jack Saunders and Maia Beth on BBC Radio 1 and Brook Reese on Apple Music 1, as well as being championed by BBC Introducing Sheffield.

Most recently, Frankie was announced to join Tom Grennan on his upcoming UK arena tour in March, having previously won over crowds supporting him in 2021.

With more new music to come and exciting live shows yet to be announced, it’s shaping up to be a massive year for this 21st century popstar!
