HOPE TALA WANTS YOU TO “LEAVE IT ON THE DANCEFLOOR” WITH NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
TEASES HER NEW PROJECT COMING THIS FALL
Maintaining incredible momentum this year with widespread critical acclaim, West London-based songstress Hope Tala serves up an upbeat and undeniable new single entitled “Leave It On The Dancefloor” today via Republic Records. The song sets the stage for a new project from Hope, set for release this fall.
On “Leave It On The Dancefloor,” Hope teams up with songwriter Mozella (Miley Cyrus, Madonna, Jonas Brothers) and producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Beck) and heads straight to the club to dance the pain away. Under a disco ball glow, the track’s eighties synths shimmer and shine over a head-nodding beat. Her vocals resound with pure joy as she invites everyone to “leave it on the dancefloor.”
About “Leave It On The Dancefloor,” Hope shares, “I wrote this song imagining what I would want someone to tell me while I was going through a hard time. The chorus lyric encapsulates it all— ‘So come on leave it on the dancefloor, leave your worries all behind, and let the night take the pain away’. Going out was something I missed intensely through the various COVID lockdowns, particularly when I was feeling down in the dumps. It was something I didn’t know how much I valued until it wasn’t possible or safe anymore. A lot of the music I’ve been writing since the pandemic started has been exploring the wonder and joy of that experience: the community that lives among the heat of happy bodies on the dancefloor—how precious that is.”
To celebrate the single release, Hope was chosen as Deezer’s “Artist Pick” for August and will be releasing an acoustic version of “Leave It On The Dancefloor” exclusive to the Deezer app. It arrives on the heels of the powerful and poignant “Is It Enough” released last month. Produced by Al Shux (Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys), the song received widespread critical acclaim, with Billboard proclaiming, “Honesty is Hope Tala’s strength, making this one of her strongest songs yet,” and Wonderland declaring, “Reclaiming her power, Hope Tala reminds us of the strength in finding peace — and leaves us with the hope of a better tomorrow.” Ultimately, Clash Magazine says it best: “Hope Tala’s ‘Is It Enough’ Contains Extraordinary Power”
Earlier this summer, Hope shined at a slew of festival performances, including Glastonbury Festival, Pharrell’s Something In The Water Festival, Way Out West Festival, NOS Alive Festival, and Mad Cool Festival. Up next, she’ll make her debut at Electric Picnic Festival on September 4th, Life Is Beautiful Festival on September 17th, and Corona Capital Festival on November 18th.
The past two years have been filled with breakout moments for Hope Tala, as she has quietly shaken up the industry with one impressive release after another. 2020 saw the release of her celebrated EP Girl Eats Sun, which featured fan favorite track “All My Girls Like To Fight”—praised by Barack Obama and featured in the opening scene of the Gossip Girl relaunch. During 2021, she piled up millions of streams with “Mad” and “Tiptoeing,” which were made with legendary producers Paul Epworth (Florence + The Machine, Coldplay, Mumford & Sons) and Greg Kurstin, respectively. Hope simultaneously incited the applause of BBC Radio 1, Billboard, Consequence, DAZED, HYPEBEAST, NME, Rolling Stone, SPIN, The Guardian, TMRW Magazine, and many more, in addition to touring North America with Alina Baraz and across the UK and Europe with BENEE, as well as headlining sold out shows in London. She embarked on her next chapter with the 2022 single “Party Sickness,” gathering nearly 1.5 million Spotify streams since its release earlier this year. It also earned widespread acclaim, with NPR praising it as “a timely reflection of how young people are earnestly trying to make up for lost time,” and Clash summing it up best as “immaculate.” Most recently, Hope was featured for a second time on Barack Obama’s Summer Playlist, this time with her song “Cherries” feat. Amine.
