2x BRIT Award-winner Becky Hill has shared her most personal song to-date, “True Colours,” which features Self Esteem. Her new album, Believe Me Now?, will be out on May 31st via Astralwerks.

For Hill, what makes “True Colours” so personal is it’s first-hand recollection of experiencing a sexual assault by somebody you trust and your friends not believing you. She has translated that into a song which simmers with empowerment, defiance, and self-care. But this isn’t a song of being a victim: it’s an uplifting anthem that Hill hopes will encourage other women to speak out against sexual assault.

Then, Hill invited Self Esteem to perform on the track, as the two women share similar beliefs and agendas, and are fans of each other’s work.

I didn’t want it to be emotional and I didn’t want it to be angry – I’ve had years of therapy to examine that anger and not allow it to inform me, who I am,” Hill shares. “Self Esteem is an artist I’ve been a huge fan of for the longest time so I’m super excited to have her on the track as I think the song resonates for both of us. It’s also the first track on the album so you really get a taste of what is to come. I hope everyone loves it as much as we do.”

Self Esteem adds, “As a huge fan of Becky it was an honour to hop on such an important track. We share a desire to turn these negative experiences into one of teaching and catharsis. ‘True Colours’ is another opportunity for both.” 

Listen to “True Colours” below and pre-order Believe Me Now? here.

“True Colours” is indicative of the soaring honesty that pulsates throughout Believe Me Now?, which is by far the most personal and authentic work to date from Hill. Covering experiences spanning love to loneliness, from life-affirming bonds to betrayal, it’s an ambitious album in which she dares to reveal snapshots from her own story. Bolstered by an array of top tier collaborators, it’s a set which is informed by her lifelong dedication to dance music culture while maintaining the instant appeal that has generated six UK Top 10 hits and seven US Dance Radio #1 smashes.

Having started with dates in Australia and New Zealand before she completed her first Europeanheadline tour, 2024 is shaping up to be the biggest ever year of touring for Hill. Radio 1’s Big Weekend gets her summer festival schedule underway later this month. Several shows during her UK arena headline tour in October have already sold-out months in advance, while November brings another landmark live moment as she plays her biggest US venues so far.
