dodie has released ‘If I’m Being Honest’, the latest track to be heard from the Human EP, due for release on 18 January in digital, CD and vinyl formats. She has announced her biggest UK tour to date and will headline Norwich’s UEA LCR on 23rd March 2019.
It follows the EP’s title track, ‘Human’ (feat. Tom Walker), released last month to a rapturous reception, with the song already exceeding 2.5m Spotify plays and 1.5m views for the video on YouTube. ‘Human’ was Phil Taggart’s Chillest Record on BBC R1, and received further support from Clara Amfo and Annie Mac.
Starting with the line “I was told this is where I would start loving myself”, ‘If I’m Being Honest’ details the feeling of being gripped by insecurity and self-doubt in the hope of romance:“Sadly I just think that I was disgusting today… I’m left a stuttering ten”. The live video, directed by Sammy Paul, sees dodie perform ‘If I’m Being Honest’ in the stunning Piehouse at the Matchstick Theatre,accompanied by a string section.
