Freya Ridings Shares Video to New Single “Castles”
As the July 19th release of Freya Ridings eagerly anticipated self-titled debut album approaches, today Freya Ridings shares the video for her new single “Castles.” Directed by Isaac Rice (Iggy Azalea, Little Mix) – the video was filmed in several locations around London. The single is currently playlisted at Radio 1, Radio 2, Virgin Radio and Heart.
Freya Ridings is the new star tipped by everyone from Taylor Swift to Florence Welch. She became the surprise success story of 2018 with her breakthrough platinum-selling hit “Lost Without You.” A once-in-a-lifetime song that immediately put Freya on the map, it hit the Top 10 on seven separate occasions during a six-month run in the Top 40 and is now approaching 200 million streams.
While “Lost Without You” established Freya’s rising star status, it was the strength of her live shows that first earned her a word-of-mouth fanbase – as captured in her early live recordings “Live At Omeara” and “Live At St. Pancras Old Church.” Every tour has seen Freya rise to play bigger venues, most recently with a sold-out London show at The Roundhouse.
Freya’s debut album is now available to order HERE and features previous singles “Lost Without You,” “You Mean The World To Me,” “Blackout” and new single “Castles.” Plus there are new recordings of tracks “Poison” and “Elephant” and brand new material including live-favorite “Holy Water” and “Still Have You.”
Freya wrote all of the eleven songs that feature on the album which underpins her world class credentials as a songwriter. In an era in which hits are inevitably written by committee, “Lost Without You” saw Freya become the first female artist to have an entirely self-written Top 10 hit since Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” returned to the charts in 2012.
It explores themes of doubt, pain, regret and vulnerability within songs of alchemical incandescence. Freya’s extraordinary, vibrato-rich voice elevates them into her greatness – a vocal gift that’s undoubtedly one of the most powerful voices of her generation.
