In the midst of a massive 2022, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Bishop Briggs reveals an explosive and energetic new single entitled “Revolution” today via RCA Records UK. Listen to “Revolution”—BELOW.
The track’s breathy verses give way to a rapid cadence on the bridge in lockstep with a military-style drum march. As the momentum reaches a breaking point, she screams, “Welcome to my revolution,” while guitar and 808s wail beneath her strong declaration. The vocals swing from what resembles a manic internal dialogue to a pure cathartic howl.
About the song, she commented, “‘Revolution’ is the answer to my feverish desire to find strength wherever I can amidst this painful time. I have found it deeply healing to project power into my music even if I’m feeling powerless in my own life. My goal is for someone out there to hear this song and feel not only capable but invincible!”
Bishop kicked off this latest wave with the emotionally charged one-two punch of “High Water” and “Art of Survival,” which both garnered more than 7 million combined streams. She enraptured viewers with a stirring rendition of “High Water” on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden. In case you missed it, watch it BELOW.

Bishop Briggs is known for emotional and cathartic songs that blur the boundaries between alternative, pop, and electronic. Born in London to Scottish parents, Bishop grew up in Japan and Hong Kong. Days after graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles where, after years of performing at any venue that would have her, she was discovered in a small hole-in-the-wall by a former-A&R rep and the rest was history. The music of Bishop Briggs transcends the limitations of singular genres, blending folk, pop and electronic music into a wholly unique sound. Her debut track “Wild Horses” reached #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart and #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 charts, with airplay on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation, Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Show and a prized spot in Acura’s 2016 TLX and ESPN’s NFL Playoffs ads. She followed up with the RIAA-certified platinum single, “River,” a searing and cathartic track that captured the attention of tastemakers and gatekeepers and rose to #3 on the Alternative chart with over 680 million global streams while Bishop’s videos have 524M overall views on YouTube and she has 1 million YouTube subscribers. After her critically acclaimed albums “Church of Scars” and “Champion”, multiple sold-out tours, live performance slots opening for Coldplay, Kaleo, alt-J, and Bleachers, and with more music on the way, Bishop Briggs is set to have her most incredible year yet. It began with the double dose of emotion on the 2022 singles “High Water” and “Art of Survival.” New single “REVOLUTION” only continues this momentum, living up to its name as Bishop ignites her most fearless, focused, and fiery era yet.
