Central Cee has reached a truly poignant moment in his career, with high anticipation around his every move. Having just concluded the UK and EU leg of his “Still Loading World Tour” with a sold-out and critically lauded moment at Alexandra Palace (live streamed by Amazon), as well as fronting the new Jacquemus “Neve World” Winter campaign, Cench has returned with an undeniably addictive new single: “LET GO.”
Sampling the hit single “Let Her Go” by Passenger, which was released a decade ago, the new offering is steeped in a warm nostalgia whilst also marking a groundbreaking moment in this young artist’s catalogue of music.
Long-term fans will recall a time when Cench sang as a default. On “LET GO” the West London hailing musician is back to serenading his fans. It’s a love song at its core, but it’s also a stark reminder that Central Cee does not adhere to the rules. Constantly adapting; constantly changing, he is an inimitable talent who, on this single, has successfully blended a dulcet and emotive vocal with his instantly recognizable rap flow.
“LET GO” is accompanied by an impromptu video, shot spontaneously pre-show at Alexandra Palace on November 22nd, by long-term collaborator Kunography. The single is, at moments, a return to Cench’s more heart-felt releases, such as “Commitment Issues” and platinum viral hit “Obsessed With You,”; but also occupies an entirely new space; it’s a developed sonic and an undeniable earworm.
