We say

As we gradually emerge from lockdown here’s a tune from multi-instrumentalist and newcomer Sid Stone that sounds perfect indoors alone or with friends enjoying the British summer outdoors. Written at Mick Jones’ (The Clash) studio in North Acton with his best mates and long-time collaborators Joy Anonymous and man of the moment Fred again… (Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, Headie One), Better Alone is the lead track from his Inside/Outside mixtape. With its singalong vibe, this piano-driven, jazz-influenced slice of soul has picked up tastemaker support from the likes of the Times, Far Out Magazine, Mahogany, Spindle and BBC Introducing among others. Watch the video. He’s currently co-producing seven tracks on Kurupt FM’s album with Fred again… and Joy Anonymous, so we might have to wait a bit longer for new music, but until then just bask in this infectious number and check out the mixtape. You won’t be disappointed.
