Sensational Freya Ridings Releases New Music Video For ‘Love Is Fire’

Fresh from a sensational 2019, Freya Ridings has already made a flying start to this year. She’s just been nominated for Female Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards, while her current single ‘Love Is Fire’ is currently simultaneously playlisted at both Radio 1 and Radio 2. She now releases an accompanying video for the track, as she looks to add to a career tally of 300 million album streams and 1.6 million single sales.

A highlight of her live shows, ‘Love Is Fire’ is a rousing declaration of love’s life-affirming power. Freya’s fervent voice simmers with strident soul, the song’s melodic potency fitting her vocal style just as elegantly as it does her intimate songs.

Freya wrote all of the songs that feature on her self-titled debut album, and this was co-written with the sadly departed songwriter busbee. Freya expanded on her thoughts about ‘Love Is Fire’ in a track-by-track feature with Apple Music:

“We open the live set with this song and have done for five years. Every time I hear that guitar, I feel adrenaline in my system, my heart going, and I know I’m ready to play. Once I started playing live shows, I understood that you want a show that feels like a journey. Having the opportunity to write with that in mind but also stay true to how I’m feeling at the moment has been an interesting cocktail of emotions.”

Freya Ridings made a huge breakthrough when her Platinum-selling hit ‘Lost Without You‘ became a regular fixture in the Top 10 towards the end of 2018 as it hit a total of 200 million streams. And Freya’s career has remained stratospheric throughout 2019. She scored a second sizeable hit with the silver-certified, ‘Castles‘ ahead of her self-titled debut album which shot into the charts at #3. Freya was also tipped by numerous high profile names as varied as Taylor Swift, Florence Welch and Richard Quinn.

Her headline tours have grown exponentially each time, and her live profile has been further boosted with major festival sets at Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight, the BBC Summer Social, Latitude, Lollapalooza, Electric Picnic and many more.

Freya is about to embark upon a headline tour of mainland Europe which covers eight countries. Please visit her official website for a full list of dates and ticket details.
