If you’re not yet familiar with the British singer-songwriter Albert Gold, don’t you worry ’cause I’m about to fix it! After releasing Into The Wild back in 2014 and Feel Safe the year before, the breakthrough artist draw an avid comparison to the likes of Frank Ocean amongst others. The alumnus of the British Academy Of New Music is now back with his new single Don’t Let Me Go, a slice of exuberant gospel-tinged soul, backed by an incredible choir for the chorus. The track came out of sessions with the Sacha Skarbek at London’s Kensaltown Studios, who’s previously worked with Lana Del Rey and Adele. “I co-wrote Don’t Let Me Go with Sacha Skarbek when I was in a dark place, but after finishing the song it’s helped me to deal with a lot of the pain and heartbreak I was feeling at the time. It’s definitely a therapy song for me”, Albert explained about the song now available on iTunes.
While the single B-side is offering a beautiful cover of Arctic Monkeys‘ When The Sun Goes Down, a house remix by S.L. Blessed has just seen the light of day on Soundcloud. Albert Gold is definitely one to watch and currently has an EP in the pipeline.
