"Gold" was the third single released from Beverley Knight's studio album, Who I Am. The song, which peaked at #27 in Britain, was different from the album version - which was produced by Mike Spencer, and is a big favourite amongst fans. The accompanying video was directed by Adrian Moat.

Knight promoted the song by performing the song on Top of the Pops and sister show Top of the Pops Saturday.

Background[edit]

During Knight's 100% Tour in 2010, She announced that she wrote "Gold" after a friend of Knight's told her that she thought we was 'gold'. Knight was then immediately inspired and sat down at a piano and then wrote the song. She dedicated the song to her friend on the album of which "Gold" appears: Who I Am and also whilst live.
