Waves", which was co-produced with Nao and Bonzai co-conspirator John Calvert, and "New Shoes", produced in collaboration with 169, the man behind grime star and BRIT nominee Dave's biggest hits.
"2 Real" is the result of another collaboration with John Calvert, and was mastered by Mandy Parnell, the Grammy-nominated sound mixer known for her work with Bjork, Aphex Twin and Jamie xx. With sleek beats, a bouncy hook and Chrystal’s distinctive, idiosyncratic Northern vocal delivery, "2 Real" is the kind of bold, surprising track people have come to expect from one of the most exciting prospects in pop.
Speaking on the track, Chrystal said:
"Making '2 Real' was an exciting and overwhelming experience. I wrote it on my first trip studio trip to London working with John Calvert. It started out sounding completely differently to how it ended up but John worked on shaping the music to fit the vibe of what I'd written perfectly. On the train back from London I remember listening to it on repeat all the way home, and knew it was special!"
