“The sound of an artist coming into her own, Rebecca Taylor’s remarkable second album as Self Esteem mixes the intimate and conversational with the unabashedly dramatic” - The Guardian, 5*, Album of the year

"Musically smart songs that combine shiny appeal with real originality and spark, this is an off-kilter pleasure" - The Times, 5*, Album of the year

“Prioritise Pleasure finds its feet more firmly with songs that can only be described as huge… songs are soaked in strings, choral gang vocals and grown-up pop-radio beats, while Taylor’s lyrics are so open and relatable, they recall Amy Winehouse” - iPaper, Album of the year

"Musically smart songs that combine shiny appeal with real originality and spark, this is an off-kilter pleasure" -  5*, The Times

“With huge choruses and head-flicking 90s dance moves, Rebecca Lucy Taylor’s performance is a maximalist pop triumph” - 5*, Observer New Review, Pop Artist of the Week

Self Esteem has recently shared a new single version of her empowering track ‘You Forever’, taken from her hugely acclaimed second album Prioritise Pleasure, released in October 2021 via Fiction Records. Self Esteem adds “Please enjoy this edit. V keen for this song about never getting over my girlfriend to get onto love island if anyone can help with that.”

Listen to ‘You Forever - Pop Off Edit’

Currently on a sold out tour of the UK playing the biggest shows of her career. She and her band have played at Manchester, London and Taylor’s hometown of Sheffield to follow after a trip to the US for her first shows as Self Esteem.

Last month it was also announced that Taylor will be composing the soundtrack for the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play Prima Facie, starring Jodie Comer who said “I am such a huge fan of Rebecca and everything she stands for - her voice, her words and her honesty. I can’t think of a more perfect person to compose the music for our production.”

Self Esteem was also nominated for the Best New Artist award at last month’s BRIT Awards and saw her grace the covers of Sunday Times Style and Time Out magazines.

Featuring the acclaimed singles ‘I Do This All The Time,’ ‘Prioritise Pleasure’, ‘How Can I Help You’ and ‘Moody’, Prioritise Pleasure is a remarkable step up from Rebecca Taylor’s 2019 debut Compliments Please and sheds light on important issues around female autonomy, comparison culture, self-doubt, heartbreak, sexual assault, comparison culture and self-accepatance, comforted and counter-balanced with an array of rhythmic flourishes that speak to the eclecticism of her experience and influence.

More praise for Prioritise Pleasure

“Subversive, clever, of the moment and utterly joyous, this is a record that reminds you how life-affirming pop music can be.” - Record Collector, 5*

“Commanding, assertive, and powerful, Prioritise Pleasure is everything pop music should be. Wholly unafraid to tackle difficult subjects with ease, in Rebecca Taylor we also have the makings of a serious pop behemoth.” - The Line of Best Fit, 10/10

“Through her own personal stories - and those of others - Prioritise Pleasure manages to challenge accepted norms and helps to exorcise long-buried demons; it’s powerful to the last drop.” - DIY, 5*

"one of those special records that's importance and legacy will be felt for years to come... a staggering step up." - Dork, 5*

“Prioritise Pleasure may well be the album of the year. It represents Rebecca Taylor reaching her well-deserved pinnacle, as a modern popstar with the whole package: voice, humour, choreography, honesty, looks and the uncanny ability to pen a banger.” - Gigwise, 10/10

“‘Prioritise Pleasure’ is an ambitious and vibrant testament to women but more importantly, a testament to herself. It’s nothing less than pop perfection.” - The Forty Five, 5*

“Assured and unapologetic, it’s charged with a dark, smirking wit that’s impossible to turn away from” - NME, 4*

“A fierce, feminist, pop prism that is dancable, joyous and above all else - fun” - Rolling Stone UK

"modern, maximalist pop songs with top notes of of R&B, trap and Afrobeat, plus experimental detailing... There are no misfires" - Uncut, 8/10

“Rather than using pop polish to mask uncomfortable truths, Prioritise Pleasure hits so powerfully specifically because it uses the language of a pop record to state them frankly. It’s masterful.” - Loud & Quiet, 8/10

“‘Prioritise Pleasure’ is a strong offering with inspiring, soul-searching songs... Taylor shows that she can do it all with this second album” - Clash, 8/10

“What is radical is this: Taylor uses chaos, rage and despair as tools to prop up her stadium-sized ambitions… These songs tell us not to stand still anymore. They tell us to start showing off. They tell us to sing again, for ourselves, for each other, all together, gnarly, messy, loud and free.” - The Quietus

“Rebecca Lucy Taylor’s second solo album teaches us that to be rooted in one’s emotions is a method of survival.” - The New Statesman
