MORE NEW SOLO MUSIC COMING FROM BECKY THIS AUTUMN
A collaboration from British singer-songwriter Becky Hill with Norwegian electronic music star Matoma, ‘False Alarm’ has been called “a huge song”; plus ‘False Alarm’ was picked as ‘Track of the Day’ at Radio 1.
Today Becky and Matoma have unveiled the track’s brand new official video. Directed by Samy Mosher, the video follows the adventures of a young couple whose shared experiences suddenly take a radical turn for the unexpected.
Written by Becky and serving as the follow-up to her critically celebrated track ‘Back To My Love’, which features Little Simz and has clocked-up well over a million streams in just a matter of weeks, ‘False Alarm’ is also the latest track – and arguably the biggest – to be added to Matoma’s innovative ‘Hakuna Matoma’ album project (available via FFRR/Parlophone).
“MarkMeets describe the track as an ‘Awesome tune”.
The strength of Becky’s impassioned vocal creates a soaring and classic topline which only furthers the track’s infectious style. The blissful ‘False Alarm’ captures the shimmering, summery side of Matoma’s production, which presents an immediately captivating hook with his uplifting brand of dance music.
“I’m so excited by False Alarm coming out this summer! I’m really glad I got to share one of the songs I’d written and collaborate with such an exciting producer like Matoma,” says Becky Hill.
“For me I’m just so inspired by incredible vocals, and I think Becky has one of the most special voices I’ve ever heard, it’s such an honour to collaborate with her on this track. When I heard her first demo vocal I got goosebumps, it was so good we ended up keeping it! I’m so excited about this song coming out and being the soundtrack to my summer,” says Matoma.

‘False Alarm’ also follows Matoma’s recent track ‘Paradise’ which featured Sean Paul and KStewart and was launched during Matoma’s set at Coachella, where Sean Paul was on hand to reprise his performance on the track, and special guests Akon and Ja Rule surprised the beyond capacity tent with unannounced appearances.
One of Britain’s most exciting rising artists and songwriters, Becky Hill is already an established hitmaker. She scored her first UK #1 with ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’, a collaboration with Oliver Heldens – the duo subsequently joined forces again as Becky Hill co-wrote his Top 5 hit ‘Last All Night (Koala)’. Other major accomplishments include co-writing and featuring on Wilkinson’s ‘Afterglow’; writing and performing on Rudimental‘s platinum selling album ‘Home’ on the single ‘Powerless‘; teaming up with US house DJ/producer MK on his track ‘Piece of Me’; and hitting Radio 1’s A-list as co-writer of ‘Gone Missing’ alongside Shift K3Y. In April, Becky released her solo track ‘Back To My Love’ which features production from Noah Breakfast (Ty Dolla Sign, Wet, Ellie Goulding) and a killer verse from Little Simz. Hot on the heels of the track – which has gone on to clock-up over a million streams – Becky announced her first debut solo show, set to take place on Wednesday November 2nd at London’s Electrowerkz. Building on the excitement she has created with her recent releases and with more new solo music due this autumn, Becky Hill is ready to show the world what she is made of with the forthcoming release of her highly anticipated debut album.
