Already an accomplished songwriter, Stacey Barthe is working hard on establishing herself as a credible and successful solo artist. Having earned a lot of attention with her collaboration with Frank Ocean last year and the subsequent Sincerely Yours EP which followed, she’s now back with a new single called ‘Keep It Like It Is’.

‘Keep It Like It Is’ comes off Barthe’s forthcoming EP In the InBetween, which is due to hit shelves February 6th.
