Katy J Pearson has returned with another slice of something incredibly special with her brand new single 'Hey You' (via Heavenly Recordings). The song was written during solo writing sessions at community artist space Island Studios and then recorded alongside Ali Chant at Toybox Studios.

Every time you press play on Katy J Pearson's music, she transports you to another place and 'Hey You' is certainly no exception. On 'Hey You', she partners her narrative-like and meditative lyrics with tender strumming and enchanting arrangements.

In a statement on the track, she said, "I wrote ‘Hey You’ quite a while back whilst I was in between projects and living back at home. I’d bought this pretty shitty nylon string from an incredibly passive aggressive man in Totnes and wrote the chord sequence. Somebody very close to me was having an extremely tough time and it was breaking my heart, so the song is definitely about them. It’s really just a song about love for people and family and empathy!"
