Becca Stevens Premieres Video For “Well Loved,” Featuring Laura Mvula, Via BrooklynVegan

New Album Regina Out March 24th on GroundUP Music, Watch The Video Here

March 10, 2017 – Becca Stevens has released the stunning video for “Well Loved,” a standout track from her new album Regina (out March 24th on GroundUP Music) which features Laura Mvula. “Well Loved” was inspired by The Pillow Book by Sei Shōnagon, and the video – which features Stevens dancing amid broken glass that reforms at the very end - represents an understanding that in order to be loved by others we must first love ourselves. Of the song, BrooklynVegan says Stevens and Mvula “sound great together. Becca’s folky style and soaring voice blends gorgeously with Laura’s more soulful, chilled-out sound.”

Regina, her first release on GroundUP Music, also marks the first time Becca has recorded solely under her own name, instead of as the Becca Stevens Band. Produced by Troy MillerRegina features creative and performance collaborations with Snarky Puppy’s Michael LeagueJacob CollierLaura Mvula, and David Crosby

Becca has reinvented herself once again with Regina. Her style has always evaded categorization, and on Regina you hear pop, rock, R&B and funk side-by-side with traditional Appalachian and British folk, classical, world music, and jazz. Intricate instrumentation and rhythms seamlessly intertwine with vocals and melodies that draw you in and stay with you.

NPR Music, says "music fans who truly appreciate complexity and craft dream of an artist as ambitious as Becca Stevens," while WNYC Soundcheck says "comparisons to Kate Bush might be facile, but they’re also inevitable."

Stevens will be touring across the globe in 2017, beginning with a hometown album release show March 30th at BRIC in Brooklyn, NY. Full list of current tour dates below.
