The track features on her forthcoming debut album, which is set to arrive this year.

With her debut album on the way, Olivia Dean is sharing her latest single, self-professed “shy love song”, ‘UFO’.

“’UFO’ was born out of a conversation over a cup of tea with Matt Hales (co-writer and producer),” Olivia explains. “We were joking about how love is a ‘sexy problem’ to have and thought it would be funny to try and put it in a song. I wanted it to feel intimate and existential and so we kept it simple with guitar and a vocoder. It’s a shy love song, thoughts I would normally keep to myself but am learning to share.”
