Kiesza, whose landmark multi-platinum worldwide smash “Hideaway” netted nearly 500 million global streams, premieres her brand new track and video,“Dearly Beloved” today!
The electric slice of disco-infused pop was produced by three-time Grammy-winning British electronic musician, songwriter and producer Stuart Price (famously known for his work with Madonna, The Killers, Gwen Stefani, etc.), marking the first taste of new music to come from Kiesza this year on the Island Records/4th and B’way/Lokal Legend imprint.
“Dearly Beloved” comes to life with the accompanying music video that sees Kiesza stripped down to basics, highlighting her dance prowess. Check out the video below
A note from Kiesza:
When my best friend Alice passed away nearly a year and a half ago, her white electric guitar was passed along to me. In her memory and because I love her so much, I promised myself that I would not let it sit in its case collecting dust. I was going to play the hell out of it, just as she would have done. So that’s what I’m doing. Inspired by her and all of you, I am absolutely ecstatic to be able to start off this new chapter with my new song, Dearly Beloved.
