Sid Batham has dropped a romantic new single, "Higher Love".

We’re a few days away from Valentine’s Day now, and musicians around the world are competing to find the perfect soundtrack for the most romantic day of the year. For his part, Sid Batham has offered an impressive contribution.


Starting life at Batham’s home studio and finished up by Rob Brinkmann at Kite Yard in Battersea, his new tune “Higher Love” is an exuberant statement of intent that has come out of Batham’s choice to take a hiatus after the release of his ‘The Demo Tapes’ EP in 2019 to go back to basics and record a raft of new tunes before returning to the spotlight.


“Higher Love” is a danceable treat of a tune that provides an upbeat swell of romantic energy to send you into this coming Valentine’s Day with excitement. Pairing glitch soul and new electronica, it’s a cleverly realised meld of an 80s styled sound and something effortlessly contemporary.


On the track, Batham says, “This feels like the truest fully realised vision of what I was trying to do previously. Everything has been done live so it’s much more raw — no cutting corners”.
