It’s been a long hiatus for one of the UK’s most talented young singers and her serene, unequivocally talented sound has been sorely missed in the scene. “Courage” is a taste of where she is right now and of the textures on her new EP through Columbia Records. Speaking on the track, Purple states: “I was feeling defeated and out of my element and I needed to almost say it aloud to release the thoughts and fears I had. My perception was leading me to believe I didn’t have it in me to do what I already was capable of. I started writing it to vent and it ended up feeling empowering to just put it out there.” She’s performed live at the Afropunk festival this Saturday 24th.
