Last week, Bishop Briggs shared a vulnerable message with her Instagram followers in the wake of her sister Kate's tragic and untimely death. Aside from thanking fans for their support and love during this unimaginably painful time, the singer-songwriter also revealed that she was thinking about releasing a song with Jacob Banks. On Friday (February 12), she shared the track, titled "Someone Else."
"I'M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE," Briggs wrote in an Instagram post about the new single. "I love you all. Thank you for being so supportive during this particularly painful and sensitive time. I wrote 'Someone Else' about feeling overwhelmed by existing in the world."
"I texted @mrjacobbanks this dream I had of hearing his voice on this song," she continued. "Within a few hours he sent back a version of him singing along to the track full of his iconic vocal tone that you really only come across once or twice in your lifetime if you are lucky. I began tearing up within seconds of hearing his voice in the intro of the song. Jacob has one of those voices that you read about in the music history books. He is among the voices that will stand the test of time and have the ability to take your breath away. I hope you feel comfort and warmth. I hope in the process of this release I do too."
The day before the song's release, Briggs shared an emotional post on Instagram, explaining that her sister took the photo for the single's artwork. "This particular day was one of my favorite days as I love how Kate is on set," she wrote in the lengthy message. Kate passed away last month after battling ovarian cancer. She was 30 years old.
