Since the release of her acclaimed album, Capricorn Sun, in 2022, TSHA has been an unstoppable force on the rise. With an array of solo tracks, remixes, and collaborations filling her discography, the London-based producer now releases one of her most star-studded tracks to date, “Somebody,” with Ellie Goulding and Gregory Porter.
TSHA crafts a moody instrumental, utilizing a saturated live drum kit, string sections, and spacious pads to set the tone for “Somebody.” Ellie bursts into the track with vibrant, nostalgic melodies, exploring a variety of cadences overtop the solid foundation laid out by TSHA. Just when you think the track has reached its peak, Gregory joins the party to bring the main hook home, passionately singing the line “I really need somebody” in harmony with Goulding.
TSHA spoke about the collaboration, sharing:
The idea for this collaboration was sparked by Ellie sliding into my DM’s last year to reach out about a session. I of course jumped at the opportunity in a heartbeat – she’s someone that I’ve admired and respected for a long time, so to have the opportunity to work together was a complete no brainer for me. It’s been an absolute pleasure working together on ‘Somebody’, Ellie’s a real sweetheart and I’m so pleased with how the track has come together. The icing on the cake is the vocals that Gregory Porter has added, which for me really elevate the track and add another dimension to the music. Having a living legend like Gregory featuring on my music is a huge milestone moment for me.
