Little Simz had a momentous 2022 with touring, a surprise album and even the 2022 Mercury Prize, and she’s recapped some of the moments in her new documentary, On Stage Off Stage.
The doc takes fans on the road with the UK singer, showing what life is like touring throughout Europe while also doing interviews and shooting videos in between. It shows the reality of how grueling a tour can be on an artist, but she manages to keep the same high energy throughout every show.
Check out the full documentary below.
In October, Little Simz won the 2022 Mercury Prize for her album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert.
Simz was awarded a trophy and a check for £25,000 following her performance at a ceremony held at the Eventim Apollo (formerly known as the Hammersmith Apollo) in London, England.
The album, which was released in September 2021, beat out projects from the likes of Harry Styles, Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler, Kojey Radical and Wet Leg. She was also nominated for the same award in 2019 for her third album Grey Area.
“In a year that has, to put it mildly, presented rather a lot of challenges, British and Irish music has thrived more than ever,” the Mercury Prize judging panel said in a statement. “That made it extremely hard for the judges to choose an overall winner from the 12 ‘Albums of the Year’ on the 2022 Mercury Prize shortlist, simply because all of them had so much to offer.
“When it came down to it, the judges were so impressed by Sometimes I Might Be Introvert by Little Simz that everyone could get behind it.”
The statement continued: “This accomplished and complex yet entirely accessible album is the work of someone striving constantly to push herself. It deals with themes both personal and political while putting them against music that is as sophisticated as it is varied.
“The Mercury Prize is all about shining a light on albums of lasting value and real artistry. Sometimes I Might Be Introvert has both.”
She closed out the year with her surprise album No Thank You, which also included an accompanying documentary. The 10-minute film is directed by Gabriel Moses and features portions of a few of the songs from the album. You can check it out here.
