Be Right Back is a brand new project and the first body of work since 2018’s Lost & Found by GRAMMY-nominated singer Jorja Smith.
The project will also include “Gone,” a somber inquiry why people in our lives have to be taken away, which follows March 2021’s “Addicted.”
“There’s something about being able to write about one thing and for it to mean so many different things to others,” she said in a statement. “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.”
The Mercury prize-nominated follow up album features eight tracks — “Gone,” “Addicted” and six additional unheard tracks including a feature from rising South London rapper Shaybo on “Bussdown.” The songstress added, “It’s called be right back because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now, this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it. If I needed to make these songs, then someone needs to hear them too.”
