TOURIST REVEALS MUSIC VIDEO FOR SINGLE “U” FROM DEBUT ALBUM
NEW VIDEO “U” (DIR. JAKE ROBINSON + DILLON MOORE) HERE
DEBUT ALBUM U NOW VIA MONDAY RECORDS HERE
Tourist “U” (Dir. Jake Robinson + Dillon Moore)
UK electronic producer and GRAMMY award winner Tourist (William Phillips) reveals his new music video for “U” (see here) and announces his February 2017 Australian headline shows. The video for “U” a co-direct project by frequent collaborator Jacob Robinson and multi-talent Dillon Moore.
A hypnotising visual piece, the video was directed by Jacob Robinson, the creative director who designed the U album cover and has worked with Tourist on a multitude of releases.
The visual translation follows on from the James Lewis-directed and Jacob Robinson art directed video for “Too Late,” which came off the back of the BBC Radio 1 playlisted track and Hype Machine #1 offerings, “Run” and “To Have You Back.”
Picking up a GRAMMY last year for his co-writer role on Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”, Tourist wrote debut album U over the course of several years. Taking the listener through the beginnings of a relationship to the parting of ways, the 10-track offering takes a more stripped back approach, following previous singles and EPs including 2015’s “Holding On” (ft. Josef Salvat & Niia) which clocked over 1.9 million SoundCloud streams.
Having toured his exquisite album throughout Europe and the U.S, including Pitchfork, Panorama and Bestival, fans will be treated to seeing this classically trained instrumentalist and producer perform his album live.
