Jorja Smith has announced her brand new project Be Right Back with the release of its lead single, “Gone.”

The GRAMMY nominee’s latest cut follows March 2021’s “Addicted” and hears Smith somberly ask why people in our lives have to be taken away. “There’s something about being able to write about one thing and for it to mean so many different things to others,” she said in a statement. “I love that this song, well any of my songs really, will be interpreted in different ways, depending on the experiences of the people listening. This one is just me asking why people have to be taken from us.”

Be Right Back marks Smith’s first body of work since her Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Lost & Found and features eight tracks — “Gone,” “Addicted” and six additional unheard tracks including a feature from rising South London rapper Shaybo on “Bussdown.” The songstress added, “It’s called be right back because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now, this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it. If I needed to make these songs, then someone needs to hear them too.”

Stream Jorja Smith’s “Gone” on Spotify and Apple Music. Be Right Back drops May 14.
