about

Σtella returns with her sophomore album “Works For You”. Following on from her acclaimed self-titled 2015 debut, this record is set for release in February 2017. 


Written and arranged by Σtella (with the exception of two tracks -“Nest” and “Walk Like I Taught You” - co-written with Velissarios Prassas), the album was recorded in Athens in 2016 and produced by artist and producer Nteibint and Σtella.

“Works For You” tells stories - its eleven pop songs talk about love and friendship, and celebrate introspection. With this album, Σtella has taken her music two steps forward, further refining her sound and continuing with her ambitious blends of pop and singer-songwriter influences to create her tightest and most mature work yet.

"Works For You" will be released on LP (with mp3 download code), CD and digital album via Inner Ear.

Track Name: Come Collect
I wanna know when you’re mine
son of a gun are you shooting in time
why do you wear so much red
it made a mess when we kissed on my bed

another round for the girl
who knows my weakness who knows how to twirl
enough to get her undressed
I ride your senses and you ride my chest

around my neck there’s a rope
sometimes you pull it and I start to choke
is it a test for the girl
who knows what it takes to be in your world

so if you want, come collect
Track Name: Nest
come shake my hand as you wish me the best
under your shoulder my innocent chest
around us letters I can’t seem to hide
everyone’s looking but you still are blind

I have a home in the shape of a nest
but nothing works and I need to protest
about the things that I used to be told
a heavy burden I don’t wanna hold

you gave me Monday, I wanted the week
you gave me clothes but they don’t seem to fit
a little closer, a little too far
all of my dreams got washed out in a bar

I have a home in the shape of a nest
but nothing works and I gave it my best
my neighbor asks me when I’m gonna sell
I said this house must be under a spell
Track Name: Watch Me Dive
I fell behind I know
my self-esteem was low
but you loved to watch me dive
still messing my sight
keep blocking my view
still messing my sight
keep blocking my view

I wonder if you know
where I spend time and grow
I’d like to break the ice
and give you advice
keep pushing you too
and give you advice
keep pushing you too
Track Name: One Toy
we had one toy to play
I would sleep with my shoes
running slow, running late
no-one gave us the blues

now the friends you once had
can remember how bad
you would treat other kids
around you
no-one told you the truth
for your innocent youth
and the stories are left
behind you

is it too late to ask
how it went by so fast
when I wanted to learn
how to kiss, how to turn

now the friends you once had
can remember how bad
you would treat other kids
around you
no-one told you the truth
for your innocent youth
and the stories are left
behind you
Track Name: I'll Never Be
if you ever need peace I’ll be near
waving a white flag
over the fights and the beer
we will rise

searching the streets to find you
woman in my dreams
hoping to make it all new
in time

the moment of truth is to stay
and I won’t be here
maybe I’m looking away
to far lights

tell me if we met again
would you remember
my voice that sang in your head
like a child

I’ll never, I’ll never be
Track Name: Walk Like I Taught You
in the beginning showing me
what was only hidden from others
hidden
now I know it all
I suppose I know some more
than I used to in the beginning

sugar and tea time now I know my bed time
I sleep like a baby
on a shore
let me tell you more
I support a different blend
than I used to in the beginning

now you walk like I taught you
over me
lover you are one to discover
I know your type
but I could be wrong
I suggest we take a test
like we used to in the beginning

butter and milk time now I know it’s all mine
I wake up forgiven
by a god
can I call you Fred
we can share each other’s bread
like we used to in the beginning

now you walk like I taught you
over me
lover you are one to discover
I know your type
but I could be wrong
I suggest we take a test
like we used to in the beginning

you walk like I taught you
walk like I taught you

like I taught you

you walk like I taught you
over me
lover you are one to discover
I know your type
but I could be wrong
I suggest we take a test
like we used to in the beginning
Track Name: Works For You
you found a new home
and a car with a hook
if you carried me there, I would look
nothing works for you
nothing works for you

change your mind
as you chew bubblegum
throw your hair to the back for the fun
does it work for you
does it work for you

I get the message
I think I understand
do I run or do I stick to the plan
when it works for me
when it works for me

we chase in circles
we walk in parallel
through the traps and the wills of a spell
and it works for me
like it works for you
Track Name: Way To Go
there’s a boy that I know
he wears tights and it's the way to go
if he wants to conquer the world
looking like a girl he once used to know
when those tights were the way to go

there’s a girl that I know
she wears ties and it's the way to go
if she wants to conquer the world
looking like a boy she once used to know
when those ties were the way to go

they can laugh all they want
super freaks on a local star
but that’s how you conquer the world
meet the boy and girl who don’t really care
what the world thinks about them yeah
Track Name: Running Slow
tonight I’m running slow
my head is gonna spin for a minute
forgetting everything else
so we could be close for a while

you wrap around my chest
wondering what’s there to discover
we have to fight to be free
but you would rather stay in your room

believe me when I say
I’ve had my share in the business
and if I make it today
I’m gonna run straight to you

and so the story ends
with a big twist for the closing
when someone told me today
what baby does best in her room
Track Name: Story Telling
I’m a lyrical soldier
I won’t be left behind
never mind if you hear me
in the rooms of your mind
oh how I tried for you

when you carry my body
can you tell if it’s warm
do my enemies know you
where can I learn from
oh how I tried for you

now I'm a song that you listen for free
can I wake up beside you in harmony
every morning
every morning

are we lost in the meantime
did we fail to reboot
now it’s harder to be me
but we’ll go by the book
oh how I tried for you

story telling is easy
when you come up with lies
it’s a lie that you please me
but I’m lost in your thighs
oh how I tried for you
oh how I tried for you
Track Name: Piano Stool
I’m sitting on the piano stool
and feeling like the bigger fool
a little trip that lasted long
it seemed to me I’d never gone
the time would pass I had you by
not close enough to show you why
I said goodbye to little things
my yellow shirt, some golden rings

the green of eyes, the red of skin
all of a sudden look so thin
adding the numbers now won’t do
trying to find some other you
so now you met the little me
I bet it wasn’t hard to see
At lost and found our memories
will always be in our blue seas

making of making of, making of making of me
