Northants singer-songwriter Billy Lockett has released his new single Finish Line, the first of three new songs which form a ‘celebratory deluxe’ version of his debut album Abington Grove.

Finish Line delves into raw emotions, navigating themes of love and loss against an irresistible up-tempo beat that fuses elements of soul and pop.

Talking about the track which he wrote with Danny LaFrombé and George Glew, Lockett said: “Finish Line is on the poppier side of what I do but I think it still has a lot of heart.

“It's always been a dream of mine to create something people can dance to while crying about their ex.

“The whole process of this song felt so easy and simple, I’ve found that’s normally a really good sign that you’ve got something special when everything just clicks into place.

“I have a feeling this could be the song I’ve always been looking for.”
