British singer Jorja Smith premiered her latest record “Let Me Down” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show, and the single is now available via YouTube. The 20-year-old singer partnered with U.K. Grime star Stormzy for the new tune.
“‘Let Me Down’ is about meaning very little to someone but being okay with that even though it hurts,” stated Smith about the song. “A dream of mine is to write a Bond theme tune. When I am writing music I sometimes envision a video playing alongside. ‘Let Me Down’ sounded quite Bondy and when I was listening to it.”
She added, “I imagined it being played in a Bond film but during a scene when James Bond has gone down into an underground, dimly lit, secret bar and he approaches the Bond girl who is sitting at the bar looking very guilty because she’s done something bad and let him down.”
