Rising Brighton soul singer Celeste kicks off 2019 with her most personal release to date,
“Father’s Son,” accompanied by a video directed by Bob Harlow. The track ruminates on the now West London-based singer’s complicated relationship with her Jamaican father, who died when she was 16: “My mother has covered so much in my life but there were points where I thought it would be cool to ask my dad this one question,” she says.
With a glimmering organ and a steady baseline it would be easy to forget how deeply sad this song is.
The release is her first since signing to True Panther/EQT in the U.S., and follows much-acclaimed tracks “Both Sides of the Moon” and “Lately,” released last year.
