And just when you thought Marie can't get any more magical, here comes a brand new, gorgeous single of hers - "Like Sand", featuring one of 2019's highlight artists to me - Beau Diako.

It's a mellow journey through jazz and r&b with the help of her silky vocals and Beau's slick guitars. This is what Marie shares about the story behind it:

"Like Sand" is a song about fear. It’s about caring about someone - but expressing it in the wrong way - the fear of losing. It is something I think a lot of people can relate to; either being treated this way - or treating someone this way. Fundamentally, it is very human to fear loss, but holding on to someone too tight, will only make them hold on to you a little less. With this song, I hope that people who are treating their loved ones this way will meet this behaviour and feeling with patience, awareness and willingness to change.

The single also marks the announcement of her full-length album Like Sand, due 22 May.
