The latest track from her forthcoming 2nd EP, ‘Do This For Me’ is a heartfelt, intimate track built around a simple piano melody, and Lily’s unmissable voice.  Listen HERE

 “Do This For Me is a song about wanting to be able to say something to someone but not feeling brave enough to do so. No matter how many times I’ve performed this song it always seems to get me when I’m on stage…it feels so real”, Lily shares.

The deeply personal nature of the song is reflected in it’s simple, yet emotionally impactful video. Recorded in a single shot, it focusses on Lily’s intense performance and really allows the songs power to speak for itself. Shot in her dressing room, prior to a show that evening, it is infused with the nervous energy one feels just before stepping in front of a crowd.

“ I wanted the video to capture the honesty of the song by doing a one-shot performance where there was nothing for me to hide behind. I’m just singing my heart out in my dressing room before I go on stage”, Lily adds.

The 20-year-old grew up listening to the soul masters like Etta James, Lauryn Hill and Sam Cooke and developed her own stripped-back style with a unique neo-soul sound.

In October, Lily will be heading out on her first headline tour of the UK, that will include her biggest show to date at London’s Omeara on Tuesday 2nd October. Already this year she’s shared the stage with the likes of George Ezra, James Bay and Tom Grennan as a support act and curated her own residency at Portobello Road’s bohemian hotspot, Mau Mau bar. The night, appropriately called ‘More Moore at Mau Mau,’ has featured slots from the likes of Etham, Sam Johnson, Jack Vallier, Tom Grennan and Will Heard.

The brand new single and tour follow the release of her critically acclaimed debut EP, ‘Not that Special’, which was out through Virgin EMI/ Closer Recordings earlier this year. Her previous releases have already won fans at radio such as Annie Mac, Phil Taggart, Scott Mills, Clara Amfo and Greg James on Radio 1. One of her recent releases ‘17’ was track of the week on R1 and both Zane Lowe and Elton John have been supporting her at Beats 1!
