Be Someone

A 1 track contemporary r&b single (3m 54s) — released May 21st 2021 on First Word Records

First Word Records is very proud to present the second single from Children of Zeus' forthcoming sophomore album, 'Balance', this one entitled 'Be Someone'.

This track also sees the return of Grammy-winner Beat Butcha on the boards (who previously produced the tracks 'Story So Far' and 'Kintsugi'), whose previous production credits include Jay Z, Beyonce, Nipsey Hussle & Griselda, to name a few, co-produced by LA guitarist & producer, Cam Griffin (whose previous credits include Summer Walker) with backing vocals from Aliyah-Rae Daly and Isaiah-Ty Daly.

Following the release of their debut album 'Travel Light' (which featured in numerous 'Album of the Year' lists), Tyler and Konny spent 2018 to 2020 extensively touring Europe, Australia and South Africa, and playing sell-out gigs across the UK. After a year with shows on ice, Children of Zeus have taken the time to marinate their music and mature their sound. Ready to head into Summer 2021 with a thunder clap from the gods, it's time to let off some brand new material into the world.

Their journey began with a mutual love of 90s Manchester pirate radio; consuming hip hop and beats, r&b and street soul, lovers rock and dancehall, garage and bass music. Then followed decades of performing, creating and collaborating in different guises. Over the past few years, the hip hop soul duo have garnered props far and wide; from Jazzie B to Jazzy Jeff. They've done performances for the likes of Soulection and BBC 1Xtra, in addition to hosting their monthly NTS Radio show and collaborating with artists like Black Milk and Goldie. As a duo they've released 5 official singles, 2 EPs, a mixtape and an album.

The Children of Zeus sound is now fully grown. This is unashamedly big people music to be played out of big speakers. The definitive sound of UK street soul in 2021. The story continues..

'Be Someone' is released digitally worldwide on May 21st 2021, with the album following on June 4th.
