Directed by Sophie Muller (Beyonce, No Doubt, The Killers, Coldplay) and filmed in London along The Thames – this stunning video cements Freya as the name to watch this year.
Since the release of singles ‘Lost Without You’, ‘Blackout’ and her spine-tingling cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s classic ‘Maps’,Freya’s monthly listeners on Spotify have catapulted to over a million. Freya also recently shared a High Contrast Remix of her track Ultraviolet and features on the new RL Grime record ‘Shine’.
Freya has spent the Summer touring the UK, Europe & US including Montreux Jazz Festival, Barn on The Farm and prepares to play Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. This will be followed by Freya’s 12-date headline UK tour in October, including London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 18th October.
Contending with being incredibly shy and feeling isolated at school, Freya found her extraordinary, vibrato-rich, pin-drop voice when she was in just Year 7 at school when she was invited to perform at an open-mic night. Freya explains, “I sang quite low for a little girl, I did this whole raspy thing. Suddenly, though, I’d found my own way. To this day, I still can’t believe I got up there. The whole room went crazy. And that was the moment where I thought: ‘Maybe I can take this thing that’s my own private thing, that I’ve done on my own, and actually share it with other people.'”
But whether it is live, sitting at the piano, or strumming her guitar, Freya has distilled a short lifetime of uncertainty, and transformed it into songs of alchemical incandescence, magicked into greatness by one of the most powerful voices in a generation.
