After dropping single Feel So Bad and End is Near last year, the news Katy Steele fans have been waiting for is here as she announces new album Big Star, alongside anthemic new single, Come And See Me.

Written, recorded and produced in her home studio, Steele tapped local synth-lord Josiah Padmanabam (Grievous Bodily Calm) to collaborate on the track, with the result a shimmering, upbeat cut of melodic synth-pop.

On Come And See Me, Steele explains “This song was born when we were asked to contribute a song for a travel campaign that never eventuated! We were trying to capture the spontaneity of two people travelling exploring new terrain and looking for a new landscape. We were drawn to the classic feel of those eighties hits with the big synths and wanted the song to feel nostalgic, like hearing a classic track for the first time.”

With new album Big Star out June 9, Steele reflects on the album’s creation saying “Of course, like many projects that demand so much energy and creativity, there were times I questioned everything. However one of the most important lessons I’ve learnt about myself is that I will never stop creating, no matter what life throws my way. This is what I was born to do. All of the elements that you will experience when listening were lovingly created and recorded in my home studio, by me and my life partner. To be able to hit record whenever you feel that spark inside you is pretty incredible. The world we live in is forever changing and now this album is a part of it.

To celebrate the release of Big Star, Katy will be jetting off on a national tour all during July and August - see below for all dates.
