January 27, 2021 — Celeste is a British singer and songwriter who is scheduled to release her debut album, Not Your Muse, on January 29.  She was the number 1 predicted “Breakthrough Act” in the annual poll of BBC music critics, The Sound of 2020, and includes among her fans Elton John, Spike Lee and Polydor label mate, Michael Kiwanuka. Celeste’s vocals are her calling card: slightly serrated, deep, and soulful. 

We feature here her most recent single, “Love is Back,” a slice of alt-R&B with classic soul textures. Fans of Amy Winehouse are especially encouraged to give this track a listen.

Enjoy.
