Fresh from experimenting with her unique sound and crafting her debut album, today Elli Ingram releases ‘Stone Cold’, the third offering to come from her much anticipated forthcoming debut album, Love You Really, which is released on September 15th via Island Records. Co-written with Ninja Tune’s latest signing and Disclosure discovered Jordan Rakei, ‘Stone Cold’ brings together their multi-instrumentalist influences on this sultry jazz-ballad.
The 24 year old rising star Elli returns with the follow up to her praised mini-album The Doghouse, following from the Brighton native’s independently released Sober EP, which marked her out as a truly singular new talent with a sound and voice of rare depth for one so young.
No Brit School alumni, Elli developed her impressive vocals first in her bedroom, then gigging in her hometown of Brighton. Drawing comparisons to Amy Winehouse and Adele, she grew up in a musical house: her dad performing in a classic rock cover band, her mum listening to Joni Mitchell, reggae and ska and her sister playing piano. Now, having toured Europe with Chase & Status and sung to a crowd of more than 10,000 at Glastonbury, she says the stage is where she feels most at home: “It’s the best feeling. I feel relaxed and safe in a weird sort of way. Especially when it’s dark and you can’t really see anyone and it’s just me. I love it."
