Premiere: Speech Debelle Returns with New Single "Terms & Conditions"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

After making her empowered return back to the music scene last month, Speech Debelle continues with the smooth sounds today. We proudly premiere the latest single from the South London lyricist, “Terms & Conditions.” Always one to bring meaning to her music, Debelle’s latest track addresses the cycles in a toxic relationship. Says Debelle of the song:

We click ‘Yes' when it says ‘Have you read the terms and conditions?' but we don’t even skim read… I was getting into a relationship with somebody without having the energy of the last person removed and allowing myself enough time to heal from the process - and I hadn’t even read my own terms and conditions, let alone considered the other person’s.

A very relatable situation right there. “Terms & Conditions” is produced by Wayne Lotek (co-produced by Nick Trepka) with backing vocals from Shingai Shoniwa (of the Noisettes) and Miss Baby Sol. Speech Debelle’s third album, Tantil Before I Breathe, will be out in September along with a collection of recipes and stories in Tantil Before I Breathe: The Cookbook.
