Album of the Week: Becky Hill - Get To Know


Chart-topping artist Becky Hill has announced details of Get To Know; a collection of the songwriter’s massive hits to date plus four brand new songs. The 13 track record features Becky Hill’s hugely successful collaborations with Wilkinson, Sigala, Matoma, MK, Weiss, Jonas Blue and Oliver Heldens - and showcases the extraordinary talent of one of the UK’s most successful and brightest stars with “one of the finest voices in pop music today”.


Speaking about the release, Becky had this to say: ‘‘Get To Know’ is a collection of all the works I have written & featured on plus 4 brand new songs that gives you a taste of the music that I love to make. Starting from the age of 19 all the way up to 25, this mini album gives an overall look at my career so far and a hint of where my career is heading’


Following solo releases including last year’s captivating single ‘Sunrise In The East’, her first for new home Polydor Records and this summer’s huge hit ‘I Could Get Used To This’ featuring rising UK house talent Weiss, the Bewdley-born singer-songwriter has established herself as a star in her own spotlight, as well as continuing an unbroken run of hit singles all of which she has co-written and sung. These include Hill’s massive hit with revered Detroit producer MK (Marc Kinchen) and BRIT nominee Jonas Blue on ‘Back & Forth’, now certified gold, ‘False Alarm’ with Matoma, UK number 1 single ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’ with Oliver Heldens and certified Gold top ten hit ‘Afterglow’ with Wilkinson. More recently, Hill’s mammoth Sigala collaboration in the form of top 10 single ‘Wish You Well’ has racked up over 100 million streams.


It comes naturally to Hill to share her emotional intimacies in song. This new collection, appropriately named Get To Know, is testament to that. It is a hugely personal body of work which continues to explore the varying stages of love and loss, from reflective opener ‘Changing’ and the euphoria of ‘I Could Get Used To This’ to the lush new ‘Stranger’, which sees her question if she ever really knew her lover, and ‘Breakdown’, an emotive reflection on the dying throes of a relationship. The collection also features a collaboration with UK artist and songwriter MNEK on ‘Find A Place,’ a skittering UKG beat merging with the pair’s sublime duet. Nowhere is this intimacy more evident than on the stunning, stripped back orchestral version of ‘I Could Get Used To This’ that closes the album, lush strings providing the perfect accompaniment to Hill’s impassioned, powerhouse vocals.
