SHARES NEW TRACK “DOWNRIGHT” – OUT TODAY!
Straight off the back of this week’s sold-out BBC Radio 1 ‘Jack Saunders Presents…’ London Omeara live show, which itself follows a sold-out debut UK tour (4500+ tickets sold), Manchester singer-songwriter Pip Millett unveils a new track today titled “Downright”.
The new track is produced by Eg White and Fred Cox, along with a KC Locke (Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, AJ Tracey, Mahalia) directed music video.
Amidst whimsical production, Pip pairs sombre sonics with chillingly relatable lyricism – it’s a stark and emotionally charged look at depression, but her unwavering braveness and vulnerability normalises the regular occurrence of down times.
The “Downright” video delves into the day-to-day struggles we have in terms of mental health (and the turmoil brought by some of our relationships), with Pip looking at her own situation from the outside as conflict unfolds.
“Downright” follows the sultry tones of “Ride With Me”, Pip’s first track since the release of her “Motion Sick” EP, which garnered support from the likes of The FADER, The Line of Best Fit, GRM Daily, Dork and more.
Pip Millett is also confirmed to play the following UK & Irish live shows in summer 2022;
13 May Brighton – The Great Escape (8:15pm – Amazon New Music Stage)
4 June Dublin – Forbidden Fruit Festival
19 June Cambridge – Strawberries & Creem Festival
9 July Glasgow – TRNSMT Festival
13 August Newquay – Boardmasters Festival
Pip Millett’s dignity and rare poise continue to snap up the attention amongst BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC 6Music, underlining the sense of an extremely special artist forging her own path. In just three years, the 24 year-old Mancunian talent has developed into one of our most thoughtful homegrown voices, with a stunning ability to reflect on political and social issues in a deeply personal and evocative way.
Her effortless performance on COLORS Berlin with her debut “Make Me Cry” has meanwhile racked up almost 5 million views and, with the likes of Jorja Smith calling her an artistic muse, we see Pip defining herself as a thrillingly potent and compelling artist – watch this space for more from the hotly tipped artist.
