Premiere: Lucy Whittaker – ‘Only One’

A self-propelled pop sensation...

Lucy Whittaker does things her own way.

A self-propelled pop sensation, the songwriter's work has caused a stir online, all glossy melodies, slinky bass lines, and a clear love of immediate, infectious songwriting.

Self-releasing her debut EP on September 15th, Lucy has spent summer supporting a cause close to her heart – Pride.

Performing at the Manchester and Sheffield Pride events, she'll be appearing on the main stage at Leeds Pride this weekend (August 6th).

It's bound to be an emotional moment for her – Leeds is Lucy Whittaker's home city, so she'll be performing to friends, lovers, family, fans, and a whole lot more.

We're able to share lilting new single 'Only One', with that shuddering bassline acting as an anchor for Lucy's pop explorations.

Lucy tells Clash: "I'm so excited to finally release 'Only One'! For me, the track is about having the determination to succeed and not giving up on what you love, no matter how difficult things get. I reached a point where I realised that the only person who is responsible for my success is me, and wrote the song to motivate myself to keep pushing forwards and doing my thing."

Tune in now.
