Rising star Dakota, the voice behind Jonas Blue’s smash hit multi-platinum selling single Fast Car, releases her brand new single Sober featuring Hackney born MC Not3s, impacting May 25th on Virgin EMI records. It is the first track to be taken from her forthcoming Call Me When You Get This EP.

Sober is a sultry R&B track that perfectly showcases Dakota’s unique voice, over layered, skittering beats and deft production from Jordan Riley, featuring a heartfelt verse from Not3s. Watch its official music video below!

Dakota said of the video
I wanted the video to really portray the mood and soul of the song and what it was really all about, which I think we managed to capture. ‘Sober’ is about really just wanting to let go, lose your inhibitions and tell someone how you really feel with complete clarity.
Having grown up in Spain but now based in south London, Dakota was first spotted by Grammy Award winning writer/producer Fraser T. Smith (the man who produced Stormzy’s album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’) who signed her to his 70Hz label in 2015.

Dakota has been in close collaboration with Fraser ever since, and spent 2017 working with songwriters such as Jamie Scott (One Direction, Rag’N’Bone Man) and Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine), honing her distinct vocal style and drawing on her diverse influences.

Sober is the first taste to be taken from these sessions and it doesn’t disappoint!
