Katy B x Chris Lorenzo – I Wanna Be
Katy B has just shared a brand new track, taken from her forthcoming collaborative album ‘Honey’, called ‘I Wanna Be’, a collaboration with Birmingham house luminary Chris Lorenzo. It’s a yearning and transcendent Balearic house track anchored by an emotive falsetto hook and fit for an Ibiza sunset. Katy recently said of the track: “when I heard Chris’ beat, I felt quite euphoric… like it’d be in that moment when you’re with someone you like and end up kissing them. When you decide not to play it cool but just go for it”.
‘I Wanna Be’ follows ‘Who Am I’ with Major Lazer and Craig David, the KAYTRANADA-produced album title track, and ‘Calm Down’ with Four Tet and Floating Points, each showcasing a different facet of the stylistic palette found the album, and Katy’s ability to bring together wide ranging musical sources to a forward thinking whole. The project sees her teaming up with some of the hottest artists and producers around, running the gamut from the underground to the top of the charts, with further collaborations with J Hus, Wilkinson, Jamie Jones, Sasha Keable, Novelist, Hannah Wants, Mr. Mitch, D Double E, MssingNo and many others.
‘Honey’ is released April 29th via Rinse/Virgin EMI. Katy will be playing her biggest London show to date on May 14th, when she headlines Brixton Academy.
