Today, Cecile Believe released her second single “Pick Up The Phone” from her debut EP, Made In Heaven to be released on May 8th. Written in the wake of her sobriety, Believe’s influence for “Pick Up The Phone” was inspired by two separate encounters with friends.
Cecile Believe on the new song:
“A friend showed me this sample of a woman singing ‘pick up the phone’ through a phone receiver, like it was a voicemail. It was super infectious, swirling around my head for a couple of months. I was about 4 months sober when another friend told me a story about a desperate alcohol-fueled night of calling number after number waiting for someone to pick up. The two things clicked in my head and I wrote the song immediately. Infused with its share of desperation, this song is a semi-lucid cry for help. As if waking from a cocktail-induced dream (nightmare) the intro voice begins to sing inaudible words, like an alarm bell ringing. Slowly the words fade into focus to reveal the urgent action begged to be obeyed. Pick Up the Phone.”
