Singer Duffy unveils music comeback ‘to lift spirits in troubling times
Pop star Duffy has unveiled her first original song for a decade, weeks after revealing a rape and kidnap ordeal that led her to retreat from the public eye.
The Welsh singer sent the song, titled Something Beautiful, to BBC Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley, who played it on Thursday.
“I don’t plan to release it,” Duffy wrote. “I just thought a little something might be nice for people if they are at home, on lockdown.”
Last month, she revealed she had been “raped and drugged and held captive”.
She explained: “Of course I survived. The recovery took time. There’s no light way to say it.
“But I can tell you in the last decade, the thousands and thousands of days I committed to wanting to feel the sunshine in my heart again, the Sun does now shine.”
