Wildcard (week 7):
Gabrielle Aplin – Be Yourself

English singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin rose to prominence early in her career, when she was asked to record a cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywoodโ€™s The Power Of Love. It was the soundtrack of department store John Lewisโ€™s annual Christmas commercial and went on to top the UK Singles Chart. The one-off single was soon followed by her debut album English Rain, which became a hit as well.

Aplin started 2023 with a bang, putting out her fourth album Phosphorescent. Less than a month after that, sheโ€™s already come up with two brand-new tracks: Side By Side and Be Yourself. Both were written and recorded for the computer-animated fantasy comedy film โ€˜The Amazing Mauriceโ€™.

In an interview with Atwood Magazine, she says about the project: โ€œI am big into music and film. I love it. It was really lovely to work to a brief. (โ€ฆ) As a fan, it was a really wonderful experience. Itโ€™s a really wholesome film about literally being yourself and community, and how your individuality is your superpower. I loved writing that. I love putting bits of the script into the song. It was a really wonderful thing to do and a really wholesome experience.โ€

Be Yourself is Aplinโ€™s new single. A joyful, up-tempo song with a lively beat and an infectious guitar riff. The uplifting lyrics reflect the filmโ€™s main theme.

Be Yourself by Gabrielle Aplin is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. That means itโ€™ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week.
