Beth Hart’s Still Got You

Out now, ‘You Still Got Me’ a new impassioned single courtesy of Beth Hart, released on the Provogue/Mascot Label Group and available on all streaming platforms.  

Also available is a video for the song that you can check out here at RAMzine – It features footage of Hart interacting with her fans, a connection that is felt deeply in both directions, along with personal footage of Beth and her husband, Scott. 
 
Produced by the Kevin Shirley and recorded in the musical heart of Nashville, Tennessee, the song is a piano-led window into Hart. Her enchanting vocals spiralling around a gorgeous string arrangement that wouldn’t sound out of place front and centre in a Martin Scorsese movie.
 
The song opens with the singer tearful lamenting, “He asked me if I need a hug,  I said I got nothin inside left to love, and then he said, But baby ya still got, baby you still got me,” before the chorus swirls up to the heavens as she yearns, “There’ll be sweet dreams waiting to come true If you let me in if you ask me to,  Sweet songs that will live on and on, If you let me in, if you ask me to, I will love you strong, but if you can’t get free… You still got me.”

Talking about the song, Hart said, “This is a true story. I had a moment where I wasn’t in a positive mood, and I was hanging out on the couch, crying pretty hard, and Scott said, ‘Hey, do you need a hug?’ I said,  I’ve got nothing inside left to love, and he said, you still got me. I said, hang on a minute; I’ll be right back. I went downstairs and used those words and how he said it. You say something like that, and someone who you love so much says back, but you’ve still got me. It’s true. If I’ve still got him, I’ve still got everything.”

‘You Still Got Me’ follows ‘Little Heartbreak Girl’, that was released in March. The song came after a period of introspection and recovery for Hart.
