UK PRODUCER TOURIST RELEASES NEW SINGLE
UK-based Grammy winning producer and composer Tourist (William Phillips) has released a new song titled “Someone Else” you can check out HERE. Alongside the new track he has announced new 2019 tour dates in the US, Australia, Asia and UK. (see dates below).
“Someone Else” follows Tourist’s latest single “Apollo,” released earlier this year, featuring artwork by acclaimed British photographer Nigel Shafran, who directed the accompanying video as well.
On “Someone Else,” Tourist remarked: ““Someone Else”, I guess is a dust clearing moment. It will probably make more sense in the context of more of my upcoming music, but I suppose this impressionistic piece is really the summation of my interest in indie music (whatever that means) and electronic music (whatever that means also)”
Tourist recently revealed Tourist Essentials - a curated collection of his music dating to 2012. William makes yearning, bittersweet dance tracks, his wide scope and artistry is showcased on the Essentials compilation. He’s considered an “artist’s artist”, with fans such as Flume and Porter Robinson supporting his releases. After the self-titled debut EP (2012), Tonight EP (2013) and Patterns EP (2014) featuring guest appearances by Lianne La Havas and Will Heard, as well as high-profile remixes for Chvrches & Haim under his belt, Tourist went on to win the GRAMMY for co-writing the Sam Smith hit “Stay With Me”, and he released his debut album U (2016) to critical acclaim and support from outlets like NPR, Vice, Billboard and Rolling Stone Australia.
Tourist’s single "Run" landed #1 spot on BBC Radio 1 dance charts and Hype Machine. This was soon followed by a string of sold out shows as a live favorite across the United States, Europe and Australia, including major festival appearances at Glastonbury, Coachella (twice) and Bestival. Last October, Tourist shared his Wash EP, as well as remixes with Wolf Alice, Christine & The Queens and Rostam.
