Spoken-word artist Emmeline has today released ‘Dust’ - her first ever collaborative track, featuring Kojey Radical. It’s taken from her sophomore EP, ‘Small-Town Girls and Soft Summer Nights’, which also arrives today via 70Hz.

Discussing the track, Emmeline says: “We wanted to make a song that was bold and playful, and that captured the spirit of the EP, with themes of theatricality and the legacy of a life on the stage. We used musical nods to Peter Pan and Frank Sinatra, whilst I wrote with references to Shakespeare and classic Hollywood; it’s a song about ageing and wish fulfilment, and how great art rarely fades to dust.”

Along with professional partner and producer Fraser T. Smith, Emmeline delivers narrative-led, personal lyricism paired with relaxed hip-hop beats. “When Kojey came into the studio to hear what we had been making, he blessed us by gracing the concept with his own meditations on performativity”, she says. “The end result was beyond our wildest dreams of how fittingly he could inhabit our world with his own lyrical and vocal prowess.”
