Following her recent showcases at SXSW and ahead of her upcoming full band performance at The Great Escape festival, Drake’s new single showcases her signature sound, blending laid-back drums, subtle guitar lines, and beguiling organ melodies.

London-based singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist Eleni Drake is back with her latest single, ‘Let it Go and Let it Be,’ a swooning ode to self-empowerment. The track encapsulates Drake’s journey towards self-possession and empowerment, rejecting being taken for granted and standing firm in her identity.

Speaking about the song, Drake shares:

“I wanted there to be a real relaxed flare to this song, kind of like brushing something off, almost living in a state of bliss. What is the point of devoting time, care, love into someone – be it friendship or partnership – only for you to be taken for granted, or for them to paint you out to be someone you are not. I know who I am, and the qualities I possess, that I have kindness and love to give, but I will not be used or taken for granted.”

Don’t miss Eleni Drake and her band at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton on May 16th, and catch them live at St Martin’s in the Fields Church in London on August 29th, where they’ll be supporting alt-country/Americana artist Jess Williamson.

‘Let it Go and Let it Be’ is out now.
