WILDES, the moniker of London singer-songwriter Ella Walker, has enlisted the Falming Lips for the new single ‘True Love (Make Me Believe)’. It’s set to appear on her forthcoming debut album Other Words Fail Me, which lands this Friday, January 13 via AWAL. Check it out below.
“This past year has been full of pinch-me moments, but today, releasing ‘True Love feat. The Flaming Lips’ is certainly one of the biggest,” Walker said in a press statement. “I wanted to add this final song to the album as an ode to self love and radical acceptance of yourself, no matter who you are, or what you have experienced. Never in a million years would I have believed The Flaming Lips would be the band to help bring this song to life – so thank you to the band, for bringing vivid technicolour to this rainbow of a song.”
Other Words Fail Me was produced by St Francis Hotel, who is known for his work with Michael Kiwanuka, Greentea Peng, and Little Simz. “It was a name I’d had for quite a while in my head, but the album really grew into the name – it became a lot more symbolic than I ever intended, as writing this album was the only way I could safely and honestly talk about what was going on at the time,” Walker explained. “I quite literally didn’t have any other words to describe it other than the lyrics in these songs.”
