Celeste’s Hot Streak Continues With “Little Runaway”
Celeste got everyone’s attention in 2019 with the stunningly good “Strange.” The 26-year-old was heralded as the UK’s Next Big Thing and subsequently crowned BBC’s Sound Of 2020 winner. And she has more than lived up to that praise with a series of excellent singles including “Stop This Flame” and the FINNEAS-produced “I Can See The Change.” The breakout star’s winning streak now continues with a soulful anthem called “Little Runaway,” which is essentially about a crisis of faith.
“Dreaming of a life, everybody got something,” Celeste begins the song over Tommy Danvers and TMS’ exquisite production. “Staring at the sky, I don’t see nothing coming.” She sends out a spiritual SOS on the chorus. “Hallelujah, take me to ya, I don’t believe but I’ll pretend,” the newcomer belts. “Your little runaway is running out of faith.” This is stunning showcase of both Celeste’s powerful pipes and the sharpness of her pen.
