Listen to Beth Ditto’s ‘Fire’ from Sex Education, Season 1, Episode 3 — and watch the music video

Watch Beth Ditto’s ‘Fire’ music video for some real fire from the indie singer

The new Netflix series Sex Education is not only getting superb reviews from a plethora of critics, it also features some superb music.

Tracks like Beth Ditto‘s ‘Fire‘. A song that was featured on Sex Education this week — Season 1, Episode 3 — and was played as Otis and Mauve are walking through school halls, and then arranging to meet up later.

Ditto’s Southern rock track ‘Fire’ comes from the American indie singer songwriter’s debut solo album Fake Sugar. That album was released in June, 2017 to mainly positive reviews, and with ‘Fire‘ as the lead single.

And, while ‘Fire‘ was generally liked by critics, it did not do so well on the charts — only reaching number 40 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in the U.S., and at number 90 on the French singles chart.

The song has, however, become somewhat of an iconic one for Beth Ditto, who has performed it live — superbly — on several occasions since.

Including this 2017 performance on the British music show Later…with Jools Holland.

Listen to Beth Ditto’s ‘Fire‘ from Sex Education in her official music video below. The video itself uses Beth’s own southern roots (she was born and raised in Arkansas) to show off her own amazing ‘fire’.

And, if you want to hear more music from her, check out Beth Ditto’s debut album Fake Sugar in the Spotify widget below that.
