The album is set to be released on May 31st
Fresh off earning her third consecutive BRIT Award nomination for Best Dance Act (after wins in 2022 and 2023), Becky Hill announces a May 31st release date for her new album, Believe Me Now? The album sees her digging even deeper into her lifelong passion for underground dance music and club culture – and cementing her status as one of dance music’s most influential voices and the genre’s leading boundary-breaking female artist. Believe Me Now? is Hill’s first full-length release for Astralwerks and the follow-up to her acclaimed 2021 debut, Only Honest on the Weekend.
The new album includes the No. 1 US airplay hit “Side Effects” with Lewis Thompson, “Disconnect” with Chase & Status, and her new single “Never Be Alone” featuring Sonny Fodera. Hill, who has amassed over ten billion combined global streams and charted six No. 1 hits on US dance radio, collaborated on the album with an array of top tier and next wave producers including Parisi, Mark Ralph, Toddla T, Maur, Solardo, MJ Cole, Jax Jones and Franky Wah.
“This album has been a joy to make! it’s come at a point in my life where I’m leaving my turbulent twenties behind me and entering my thirties as a more confident, knowledgeable and self-assured woman and this album really reflects that,” Hill shares. “I wanted this body of work to be deep rooted in dance music but have my story telling songwriting flowing throughout, describing tales of loneliness, togetherness, love and betrayal. I can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Whether she’s drawing on influences from the worlds of drum ‘n’ bass, anthemic house, techno, or atmospheric trance, Hill’s flair for blending the heart of such genres with her soaring powerhouse vocal has produced an album that’s rich with credibility and personal integrity, yet with immense global appeal.
Hill’s 2023 US tour was completely sold out and she also performed at numerous US festivals, including Austin City Limits and CRSSD. She recently announced a huge UK and Ireland arena headline tour and numerous festival dates. Currently on tour in Australia and New Zealand, she will embark on her debut headline tour of mainland Europe in April.
Described by David Guetta as “one of the very rare queens of dance of music,” Hill’s chart-smashing songs include “Run” with Galantis, “Crazy What Love Can Do” with David Guetta and Ella Henderson, “History” with Joel Corry and “Nothing Really Matters” with Tiësto. “Remember,” a collaboration with David Guetta from her debut studio album, Only Honest On The Weekend, is certified Gold in the US.
She recently launched the second series of her critically acclaimed podcast, The Art of Rave with the iconic Fatboy Slim. The initial series featured influential names such as Roni Size, Fabio & Grooverider, Sister Bliss, Andy C and Pete Tong.
