Grammy-nominated Jorja Smith returns to announce a new 8-track project. Be Right Back is due May 14th and is Jorja’s first body of work since her 2019 critically-acclaimed, Mercury Prize-nominated 2019 debut album Lost & Found. Her debut album earned her first Grammy nomination for Best New Artist as well as her second BRIT Award win for Best Female Artist.
Alongside the announcement, Jorja is sharing a new single “Gone.” Eagerly anticipated, Smith states that “There’s something about being able to write about one thing and for it to mean so many different things to others. I love that this song, well any of my songs really, will be interpreted in different ways, depending on the experiences of the people listening. This one is just me asking why people have to be taken from us.” “Gone” follows Jorja’s March “Addicted”, both of which appear on ‘Be Right Back’, alongside 6 additional unheard tracks including a feature from rising South London rapper, Shaybo on track 3, ‘Bussdown’.
