English Rose includes fan favourites Let Go and Yesterday as well as Connie’s recent single, the BBC Radio No. 1 favourite Fast Cars.
Connie Constance co-wrote songs on English Rose with the incredibly talented Mura Masa, Kwesi, Darko, Dave Okumu and Alfa Mist. The album also includes production form Adele and Arctic Monkeys’ Jim Abbiss.
Connie Constance is a force; pioneering a new era of indie rock-influenced, off-kilter soul with poetic narratives, and standing at the forefront of current young UK artists. Unbound by the constraints of one particular style or genre, she’s created a sound that references Britain’s great musical history, whilst driving it forward with new ideas and a new viewpoint.
English Flower is a sturdy vessel for Connie’s big questions and critiques, as well as a musically complex and beautiful body of work. Listen above.
