Today GRACEY releases her new single ‘Got You Covered’, reuniting with the most in demand writer/producers in the country Billen Ted after their previous top 10 hit together ‘Don’t Need Love’ which was nominated for Best British Single at the BRIT Awards 2021 last week – scoring GRACEY’s first ever nomination. An instant earworm, ‘Got You Covered’ is yet another outrageously good GRACEY single, perfectly timed to soundtrack our long awaited summer of dancing. A truthful, emotional song about being there for a friend in need – a message that will undoubtedly resonate with fans after this difficult year – the single is GRACEY’s first offering in 2021, and is Billen Ted’s follow up to their number 1 song ‘Wellerman’ with Nathan Evans and 220Kid. ‘Got You Covered’ is available to stream now via Polydor.
Speaking about the track, GRACEY says “‘Got You Covered’ is a love song to my best mate. It’s about being there for someone no matter what, and recently she’s been battling an eating disorder alongside going through a heartbreak. It’s about having someone’s back through the highest and lowest points of life, and it’s my way of telling her she is never alone. It’s a message I think needs to be said right now; while the pandemic has made it hard to physically be together, it’s proved the importance and value of these relationships even more.
“I was also so excited to reunite with Billen Ted. They were a huge part of bringing ‘Don’t Need Love’ to life and they did the same with this song! The garage/dance influence they brought takes me right back to nights with my friendship group as 17-year-olds, and I hope it spreads some good energy as we head into the summer months.”
Last year saw GRACEY confidently emerge as one of the most talked about and successful new British artists. Not only has she released a string of brilliantly relatable and catchy-as-hell pop gems, but the 22-year-old Brighton born star scored her first ever Top 10 single in the UK charts with the Platinum single ‘Don’t Need Love’ (also with Billen Ted as well as 220Kid), and a viral trend on TikTok, where her ‘Alone In My Room (Gone)’ became a certified lockdown anthem. She was also playlisted for the first time on BBC Radio 1, hit well over 100m streams, and was included in in a multitude of Artists to Watch 2021, by the likes of BBC Entertainment, The Official Charts, The Guardian Guide, and in the NME 100. Her debut mini-album, The Art Of Closure, released late in 2020, is the sound of a fiercely talented new popstar firmly in control of her ascent, celebrating everything she has achieved so far and looking forward to her brilliantly beckoning future.
