Diedrick splices soul and electronica on new single 'Are We Alive'

The Derby-hailing talent is closing out his pace-setting year in style...

Derby-born, London-based R&B singer Diedrick is rounding off his breakout year with a brand new single 'Are We Alive'. 

Since putting out his debut track 'Better' back in May, the soulful talent has continued to impress with his modern takes on a variety throwback sounds influenced by his musical upbringing. From Celine Dion and Mariah Carey to Mario and Usher, Diedrick grew up on a diet of R&B that can still be heard coursing his output today. 

The new cut takes a noticeably different approach to his first two releases, veering towards the dance floor with an interesting blend of electronic production and soul-inflected vocals. 

Where the singer's melodies have taken centre-stage previously, 'Are We Alive' brings something new to the table, striking a balance between mellow and danceable while allowing Diedrick to show his versatility across a range of genres. 

Finishing the year strong, 2023 is poised to see this rising talent cement his name on the scene even more.
