(March 31, 2023) – Today, rising star Joseph Lawrence releases stirring new track “BeGod,” out now via Sony Music UK/RCA Records. The track is supported by a live performance video that marks Lawrence out as one of the leading new vocalists of his generation. It is a song that places Lawrence in the league of fellow modern soul iconoclasts Sault and Gabriels.
“BeGod” is a hymnal hallelujah, excavating a powerful holy spot between Massive Attack and Benjamin Clementine, elevated by mournful brass and cooing choirs. It is a dramatic sweep, deftly executed by Lawrence. The release is supported by a live video that showcases the full power of his voice and stagecraft.

Speaking of the track, Lawrence says “Be god asks the question of how far my own self-belief will take me and wonders what happens if I go too far.”
“BeGod” follows, “Tomorrow” and “Empty House,” two songs that subtly introduced the listener to Lawrence’s world before the dramatic climax of “BeGod.” With more music on the way, make sure you stay tuned for more news.
