Aside from her videogame mix that arrived in December 2017, Shura hasn't released new music of her own since her brilliant 2016 debut album, Nothing's Real.

On her new offering, which arrives with equally intimate visuals directed by Woman's Hour vocalist Fiona Jane Burgess, Shura writes, "with "BKLYNLDN" I wanted to explore having both a sonic & lyrical evolution. It’s about desire - playing with the idea of it being all consuming and at times overwhelming. It starts with the immediacy of physical desire - 'this isn't love' and yet as the song unfolds that sentiment begins to unravel; I am clearly in love and instead of my girlfriend coming to London, I end up moving Brooklyn. I wanted to capture that reversal and for me that section feels like my summer, skipping through Brooklyn, holding hands with my girlfriend and singing out loud without caring about how stupid you look."

Shura's sublime new single is the first taste of her highly-anticipated second record, which is still in progress.

"BKLYNLDN" is out now via Secretly Canadian. Shura has announced a new headline show at London's Roundhouse on 14 November. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on 14 March. Find out more.
