“In essence, ‘Stop This Flame’ is a song about seeing it through to the end,” Celeste reveals. “Whether it’s about not letting go of love, not letting go of a dream or stridently coming through some form of adversity. The song has always evoked those feelings within me.”
The 26-year-old credits her maternal grandfather for introducing her to the legendary artists who would go on to influence her sound, a modern take on the timeless, heartache-tinged soul of smoky jazz bars and velvet-voiced storytellers.
Celeste has been widely lauded for her spellbinding voice and poignant songwriting and this year has seen her star continue to soar. The Brighton-raised singer songwriter scooped the prestigious double, winning both the BBC Sound of 2020 and the BRIT Awards Rising Star and has much more planned for 2020.
Gary Hughes, Sky Sports Director of Football said, “We’re delighted to have Celeste’s ‘Stop This Flame’ feature as our title music across our Premier League coverage this season. The football season is all about hopes and dreams for millions of supporters up and down the country, and this track brilliantly portrays those feelings.”
