‘Stole’ is the first solo release from Francesca Belmonte. Already a known and respected collaborator with the artist and legend Tricky, Francesca has cultivated her unique sound over the last 5 years, and is now making the natural progression to fully fledged solo artist. Haunting and melodic, it’s a perfect music marriage of twisted trip hop, edgy pop and husky soul, while lyrically the song explores themes such as self-preservation, vulnerability and survival.
Tricky had this to say about Francesca :
“Of all the artists I’ve ever worked with this is the best collaboration, as soon as people hear this album they’ll understand why I say this.” -Tricky.
Recently signed to Tricky’s label False Idols, Francesca’s debut album will be released in 2015.You can also catch her live on December 3rd, Upstairs at The Garage in London.
