Elmiene has signed a deal with Def Jam/Polydor and shares his new song “Mad At Fire” which was co-written with Syd and produced by Lil Silva. The British singer describes “Mad At Fire” like this:
“Like fire still burns when it’s cold out,
Like skies can still be grey in June,
Like Bourbons are still eaten even though custard creams are better,
I can still love you and leave you.”
The song is his first output since the release of his EL MEAN EP which was released in March. The up-and-coming crooner also made his television debut on Later…With Jools Holland where he performed “Marking My Time.” Festivalgoers witnessed his first Glastonbury show last Friday on the BBC Introducing stage. “Mad At Fire” is about the reality of a breakup and all the conflicting feelings that can happen to both parties. Elmiene is establishing himself as one of the next voices in R&B to come from across the water and give life to his generation’s creative presence.
