Luke Sital-Singh has released his gorgeous new track ‘Undefeated’, taken from his upcoming collaborative EP New Haze, out April 3rd.
Co-written by Sital-Singh with Matt Hales (Aqualung), ‘Undefeated’ follows lead track ‘Almost Home’, a co-write with Steve Aeillo (Lana Del Ray, Mumford & Sons, Thirty Seconds To Mars). There are two further songwriting collaborations on ‘New Haze’ EP – with John Smith and Ciaran Lavery – which was recorded in Sital-Singh’s new home city of Los Angeles, where the London-born musician relocated to in 2019.
“This is one of my ‘old man raging at the sun’ kinda songs,” comments Luke about ‘Undefeated’. “I often get bewildered looking back at my life and thinking how fast it speeds by whilst at the same time how slow it crawls on. It’s confusing to say the least and my collaborator, Matt Hales, had a great idea to put the verse into a non-standard time signature which accented the time confusion. Clever chap. Whenever I’m at my lowest I let all these existential fears about time drag me down, so this a nice reminder that I’m, so far, undefeated.”
Sital-Singh will follow the release of New Haze EP with a European tour, including a London show on May 5 at the Union Chapel, where he was recently appointed Cultural Ambassador.
“The Union Chapel has been a very important place to me one of those venues that brings its own unique magic to every performance,” he comments. “As one of the Union Chapel’s first cultural ambassadors I want to spread the word about this magnificent place and the work they do for the arts and social justice. That I once used to work here as a steward makes it only more special.”
Sital-Singh’s 2017 single ‘Killing Me’ recently entered the UK Top 30 midweek singles chart following its use in the BBC1 drama series ‘Silent Witness’. Written for his grieving Grandmother, ‘Killing Me’ is the South-West London born singer-songwriter’s most streamed song and he performed it during his recent TED Talk, where Luke spoke about the cathartic effect of writing and performing ‘sad’ songs.
