Josephine Philip has just released her stunning new single ‘The Clue.’ Centred around the acceptance of impossible love, the track is reminiscent of the sounds of Nina Simone or Nancy Sinatra.
Having worked with renowned producers including Christian Löffler and Trentemøller, Philip’s versatility as an artist is highlighted by ‘The Clue’, which saw it’s release via Midnight Confessions.
A simple, back to basics track, this pretty, vintage-style song is a pleasant ode to some of our great female vocalists. Speaking of the track Philip explains: “‘The Clue’ is a contemporary love song. It revolves around impossible love and the acceptance of it. The track is also an homage to Nina Simone’s version of Billie Holiday’s song Don’t Explain. Don’t Explain was written by Holliday in response to one of her husband’s affairs. When he tried to explain away why lipstick was on his collar, Simone responded disgustingly “Take a bath, man; don’t explain”.” The Clue is an inspirational tribute to the great women, their sound, storytelling and courage, who took to the microphone and stage before me.”
‘The Clue’ features on the Spotify playlist POP_GROUND.fm
