- Katey Brooks Premieres New Song “In Your Arms” on SoundCloud
- British singer-songwriter Katey Brooks premiered a new song “In Your Arms” on Billboard.
The song will appear on her upcoming debut album "Hearing Voices", which is expected to be released in spring 2019.
About the song, "It kind of broke my whole world open," Katey Brooks told Billboard. “There's still a lot of love there, but kind of different ideas about life and future and stuff. There was always a little bit of doubt as to how much I loved this person, and this song just kind of fell out of me a couple of months ago, in about 20 minutes. It was just my way of saying, 'Well, actually, I really do love you...' It's a total love song.”
The track is gospel and R&B sound, it reminds us of Ben E King's "Stand By Me".
- Originally, the debut album "Hearing Voices" was supposed to release this year, following 2016's EP "I Fought Lovers". But it was delayed due to business type.
“I lost the album. I had to let that go. And it was really devastating. I went to a really dark place with that,” she said.
Finally, she decided to remake the album. “I’m remaking the album. I’m starting again and I’m going to produce it. There will be songs from We the People and some brand new stuff as well. I’m really excited about it.”
The album will blend soul with Americana and even some country. “It’s going to have a hint of something that the I Fought Lovers EP had, but a slightly more soulful, gospel, Americana vibe." she explained. “I’ll share it with as many people who want to listen and connect. That’s the thing about music, it brings people together, creates an intimacy that you wouldn’t normally get in other walks of life. It can connect you with yourself, the world, lead you to feel that you’re thawing out. I find meaning in music. And the meaning is connection.”
