Fast-rising singer-songwriter Stephanie Cheape has released her latest single, Queen. The track was co-written with Sam McTrusty and Ross McNae of Twin Atlantic, and was released earlier this month.

The Scot has already got a number of live shows under her belt, including supporting Barns Courtney, selling out King Tut’s and performing at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay. With live music being impossible due to the pandemic, Cheape used the lockdown to work on new material, including some writing sessions with McTrusty and McNae. Queen is the first single to emerge from those sessions.  

Watch the video for Queen below:

Cheape describes the writing process as “absolute escapism.” However, as with many people, she has found the lockdown difficult. “I definitely have struggled with lockdown, the isolation alone was brutal for me, although it has led to some great opportunities in my writing. If I’m being brutally honest – I’ve hated it [the lockdown]”.

It’s no wonder, then, that Cheape is looking forward to being able to play live again. “I can’t wait to be in the atmosphere of live people enjoying life.”
