It’s been almost a year to the day since we last heard from Desta French. After releasing one of our favourite tracks of 2016, the super smooth, Shame, the British retro-R&B specialist has taken her time perfecting the follow-up, but today she’s finally ready to share new single, Needing U.

According to Desta, the time between the releases is because “I’m never happy! Always changing stuff around – forever trying to find something good enough or definitive enough.” Well it’s safe to say, it’s been worth the wait.

A glorious slice of 90’s inspired R&B featuring big bass kicks and a brilliant sample, Needing U is a strong return to form from one of the most promising acts to emerge from the UK’s bubbling R&B scene in the last few years. We just hope it’s not another year before we hear from her again
