New Single 'More than That' by Hattie Whitehead Out Today!

A little while ago I played bass on Hattie Whitehead’s latest EP ‘Old Soul. The newest single ‘More than That is out today! You can buy and stream it in all the usual places.

“Hello old friend, it’s been a while” is the opening of Hattie Whitehead’s new EP  Old Soul.

The “old friend” she refers to in her song “Ups and Downs” is her guitar, but it could just as much be an opening statement to her fans.

It’s been three years since the Richmond-born singer songwriter released her debut EP Home, which led to radio play on the BBC and Amazing Radio, and a sell-out gig at St Pancras Old Church in London. Since, she has performed at a raft of festivals such as Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Field Day and Cambridge Folk Festival, supported the likes of Beth Rowley, and won the third prize in Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Competition.

Hattie’s new EP of glorious heartfelt folk-pop is worth the wait, brimming with lilting melodies that are always enthralling and never predictable, and vocals that are distinguished by their combination of soulfulness and crystal clear purity. Tackling themes of grief, friendship, relationships, and the processing of difficult emotions, the music of Old Soul sees her matured since the release of Home. It’s summed up by the title of the EP itself. “I guess I have done quite a lot of growing up over the last three years, so I’ve become a little bit older in my soul,” she says. “And I’ve always been quite a deep thinker anyway so it feels quite fitting.”
