Melbourne neo-soul artist Hannah Wilson is getting ready to release her new single, Shame, which is a collaboration with UK rapper Tee Peters. It brings together the energy of grime, house music and UK garage with Hannah's timeless, soulful vocals. Tee Peters' silky verse adds to the UK influence present in the track, and we're stoked to be premiering the track right now!
The global collaboration makes sense, as Hannah says she's a big fan of UK artists like Cleo Sol, Jorja Smith and Ama Lou. It's not hard to imagine this track playing out of the speakers at a day party in the UK, or indeed anywhere - it'll get you up and moving. She met Tee Peters at a London songwriting camp back in 2019, and she says that she knew he'd be the perfect fit for the track. We agree.
Hannah's been making music since 2020, releasing two singles to date - Sweet & Sour and I Wanna. The latter features fellow Melbourne artist JAYDEAN, and both showcase her honeyed vocals. She spent 2021 working on new music, and Shame is the first taste of Hannah's new era - where her previous singles featured a lot of live instrumentation, Shame is more based in the electronic realm.
Speaking about Shame, Hannah reveals, "Lyrically, I knew I wanted to write a song about accepting the fact that things sometimes just don’t work out, and more specifically the failure of relationships. It can be such a shame! However, all experiences we have of that failure shape us into who we are and how we carry ourselves into our following relationships. Sometimes you just got to accept that it's a shame, and move on."
