West Londoner Hope Tala’s latest single, “Tiptoeing,” toes the lines of R&B and bossa nova, while navigating the dichotomy of falling in love or protecting yourself. “Tiptoeing” — produced in collaboration with Greg Kurstin, who produced Adele’s latest, “Easy On You” — debuted as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record In The World, and has a dreamy music video with Tala.
“Tiptoeing” follows her 2020 EP Girl Eats Sun and the single “Mad” from earlier this year. Hope Tala said of the latest song: “‘Tiptoeing’ is about the dance we do when we’re at the threshold of romance. It’s about treading carefully when you’re not quite sure what the other person is feeling, but desperately wanting to take a risk because you’re young and life is short.”
