BEKA Releases New Song “Tears”
London-based singer-songwriter BEKA has released a new song “Tears” along with a music video.
The song received its first play during BBC Radio 1's Future Pop with Mollie King.
The track was written by Rebeka Rachel Prance, Gil Lewis, and Andrea Rocha. Produced by Rebeka Rachel Prance and Gil Lewis.
The accompanying video was directed by Devon Kuziw.
BEKA shared on social media, “I was in a session feeling a familiar overwhelm and internal chaos, so decided to just take a moment and step out to make some tea☕️ I was so overcome by how often I felt like a whirlwind, unable to be 'an adult' bringing a little trail of chaos to 'everyone' and I felt done with being like that. As I stirred my tea I started to sing a little melody and the words 'I hope my tears 💧don't dry up' came out. There's always been something about the tears that follow chaos that have felt acutely comforting as they're a soft reminder that, at worst… you can still feel and if you're feeling, you're still alive and if you're still alive then you still have something to give to the world.”
- She continued, “The next day I sat in another session, sharing about how often I feel like a bucket of water, sloshing all over the place and as we began to write, it all tumbled out. 'Tears' felt like a moment of euphoria for me. It is about me coming to terms with the reality that even when overwhelmed, with my face on the floor, I can find peace, because if I'm still feeling, then I'm not done yet.”
She added, “When writing this I had been running against these same walls for so long and had started to ask some questions about myself. This process led me to the most profound moment of my adult life, as I learned I am neurodivergent and have ADHD🤍This moment came as a huge relief. Suddenly realising so many of those internal battles were actually symptoms. I started this song unaware of having ADHD and then wrote the bridge post diagnosis as a real letter to myself to say that I no longer need to mask, regardless of how ugly the process, I've been there before and I've survived it.”
