ArrDee and Cat Burns open up on soul-stirring single ‘Home From My Heart’
The emotional duet sees two breakthrough superstars in captivating form
ArrDee – ‘Home From My Heart’ feat. Cat Burns
Rising superstars ArrDee and Cat Burns duet for the first time on moving new single ‘Home From My Heart’, out 9th March on Island Records.
A poignant affair revealing ArrDee’s more tender side, ‘Home From My Heart’ tells the story of a relationship on the rocks, with the rapper exploring the struggles of balancing his newfound success with his personal life. Alongside his own gifted lyricism, ArrDee utilises Cat Burns’ sensitive guitar work and elegant vocals to maximum effect for the track’s emotional core. “Please don’t give up on us”, sings Burns in a stirring chorus. “Where’s the home for a heart when you’re a mile high?” replies ArrDee. It’s a touching sentiment about the cost of success from two artists on meteoric rises since their respective breakthroughs last year.
The single is accompanied by a heartwarming video that pays tribute to the pair’s humble beginnings. Shot with creative camerawork by director Najeeb Tarazi, the UK MVA-nominatedfilmmaker who has previously worked with artists including AC/DC and Gaz Coombes, the video is an intimate look into the daily lives of a revolving cast of characters – including nurses, delivery drivers, and ArrDee and Cat Burns themselves – on Britain’s homely high streets and council estates. As the characters embrace at the video’s end, ‘Home From My Heart’’s message about the importance of human connection truly resonates.
After bursting onto the scene at the start of 2021, ArrDee continues to go from strength to strength. ‘Home From My Heart’ follows last month’s raucous ‘Loser’, which is already fast approaching two million streams on Spotify, and last year’s debut mixtape ‘Pier Pressure’, which has been BPI gold–certified, peaked at #2 in the official charts and became the biggest breakthrough release as the highest selling debut album for a British solo artist in 2022. ArrDee amassed over 500 million streams with five UK ‘Top 10’ singles – ‘Oliver Twist’, ‘Flowers (Say My Name)’, ‘War’ with Aitch, ‘Wasted’ with Digga D and the groundbreaking remix of Tion Wayne and Russ Millions’ ‘Body’.
Fellow young breakthrough artist Cat Burns is a multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter from South London. Defined by elegant, frank, conversational lyrics and instantly familiar melodies, Cat’s remarkable sound has skyrocketed her up the single charts, made her the biggest-selling female artist of 2022 in the UK, and earned her a string of coveted accolades. With three BRITs nominations – the most for a female artist at this year‘s ceremony – a BBC Sound Poll 2023nod, and Spotify’s Global RADAR artist to her name, Burns has the world at her feet.
‘Home From My Heart’ is a gem that sees two trailblazers united in a moment of reflection. A collaboration you won’t want to miss.
