This time last year Celeste had just been crowned winner of BBC Music’s Sound of 2020, and was preparing for the BRIT Awards performance of her single “Strange” that stole the whole show. She claimed the Rising Star Award that night, and today, nearly 12 months later, she’s cementing that title with her debut album Not Your Muse.
Featuring fan favourites “Lately” and “Father’s Son”, the album stretches from Celeste’s early soul and jazz-influenced sound to more pop-leaning hits. With intimate lyrics about everything from letting go of love to welcoming new love in, it’s an understated but powerful collection of tracks that bring us right into her inner world.
Covering our Spring 21 issue, Celeste talks making the record on her own time, and why she’s done being a muse and is ready to step into the seat of the artist.
