A new song by Duffy has played on BBC Radio 2 just weeks after the singer explained why she had disappeared from the public eye for several years.

Last month Duffy said she had previously been "raped, drugged and held captive" for several days, adding many fans "wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why".

The 35-year-old's new song Something Beautiful was played by DJ Jo Whiley on Thursday.

Whiley said Duffy had written to the show to send in the track.

According to Whiley, the message said: "You might have read the words I wrote a few weeks back, I do feel freer.

"I tried to follow it up with a spoken interview but it is harder than I thought. I will follow up in writing soon."

The email added: "It is just something for you to play people on the radio during these troubling times, if you like the song of course. If it lifts spirits.

"I don't plan to release it, I just thought it is something that might be nice for people if they are home, if they are on lock down."
