Ascendant soul singer and BBC Sound of 2020 winner Celeste shares new single ‘I Can See The Change’, via Polydor Records.
Produced by FINNEAS, ‘I Can See The Change’ is a song about finding hope in the wake of adversity and realising that a brighter future lies ahead, a sentiment that no doubt resonates in uncertain times like these.
Speaking about the story behind the new single, Celeste explains, “It was a strange time for me as externally lots of exciting things were happening in my life, but internally I was feeling flat. I felt disconnected from myself and the world around me so I knew something needed to change.

Celeste continues, “It’s difficult for me to fully articulate, but when I started writing the song I pictured a blurry, unidentified image far off in the distance that I knew I had to move closer to in order to understand what it was and perhaps what it meant, but also realising that the journey wasn’t going to be easy. Ultimately the song is about hope and change but knowing that to obtain this requires effort, patience and conviction.”
Celeste’s spine-tingling performance of her song ‘Strange’ at this year’s BRIT Awards, coinciding with her Rising Star award win, was a watershed moment for the British-Jamaican singer, placing her in the spotlight in front of luminaries like Stormzy, Dave, Harry Styles and Billie Eilish.
Billie and her songwriter-producer brother FINNEAS have proven to be some of her most outspoken supporters yet, with Celeste and FINNEAS ultimately staying in touch and deciding to collaborate on the new song, finishing it during lockdown.
