Who am I was premiered by Annie Mac as her ‘Hottest record’ on BBC Radio 1 recently. The single follows Katy’s announcement of her stellar collaborative album project Honey and is her first single since ‘Turn The Music Louder’ which reached #1 in the charts.
Honey previewed with ‘Calm Down’ which saw Katy team up with Four Tet and Floating Points. Katy will continue to join forces with the hottest artists and producers to create an album that will top the charts. Some of the artists that will be featuring on Honey are: Wilkinson, Hannah Wants, Chris Lorenzo and many more.
“I always love performing at places like Warehouse Project or Fabric,” Katy says, “and I wanted to have new songs that I could perform at that sort of gig. Just a few things to remind people what I was about.” Honey a 13 track snapshot of the state of the underground in 2016 has taken on an identity of its own, and is a bold statement of Katy as a songwriter and performer as anything in her catalogue. “This project means a lot to me because I got to work with so many artists that I respect so highly”, Katy summarizes. “Writing it was so natural and I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as I did making it.”
Katy’s biggest London show to date will comes May 14th, when she headlines Brixton Academy.
Starting off quite promisingly ‘Who Am I’ sounds like it will develop into your average dance track, but it just doesn’t speed up. It remains slow and begins to sound like it should be featured in ‘save the last dance’. Craig David was a poor choice to feature in the song as his voice sounds like he is complaining all the time regardless of what he is singing about.
On a whole I am disappointed with this song, however I am a fan of Katy B and look forward to hearing what she releases in the future.
