SONG OF THE MONTH: Risk It All by Ella Henderson (August 2021)

WORTH A LOOK?: ****

2021’s shaping up to be a great year for Henderson with her Tom Grennan duet Let’s Go Home Together already one of the highlights of the last 12 months and now this uptempo track featuring both the House Gospel Choir and Just Kiddin dropping.

  • Read on for reasons including everything we know about Henderson’s long-awaited 2nd album

Radio 1 were onboard for Let’s Go Home Together and the tropical house fizz of Risk It All should hopefully see it join that influential station’s playlist soon.

It’s been a whopping 7 years since Henderson’s debut album Chapter One topped the UK chart and we’ve seen real songwriting development and performance maturity in that time which means we absolutely can’t wait for the collection we’re affectionately and probably not at all accurately calling Chapter Two.

No word yet on a release date for that album but the success of Let’s Go Home Together followed in such proximity by this new release leads us to believe it could well be out before the end of the year.

We wrote about her return to the live arena in east London at a boutique venue in 2019 and we’re desperate to hear new song Bones again and believe it could be the big hit to really sell that 2nd album on the back of.

Henderson’s Hoxton gig was such a contrast to when we saw her at the 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2015 that we can’t wait for the world to fall back in love with her once more as it’s clearly starting to.
