Last week GRAMMY Award-winning composer / producer William Phillips aka Tourist released new single “We Stayed Up All Night (ft Ardyn)” which Annie Mac premiered on her BBC Radio 1 show. Today, Tourist has announced a November residency at London’s Corsica Studios, support for the shows will be revealed shortly.
London-based songwriter and electronic musician Tourist makes yearning, bittersweet dance tracks and is considered an “artist’s artist”, with fans such as Flume and MJ Cole 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, Christine and the Queens 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 Vice, Billboard and Rolling Stone Australia.
The single, “Run” landed with #1 spots 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.
Here’s what’s next for Tourist: “With this new music I wanted to make something that was more reflective of who I am now and how my life has changed over the past year. I moved out of my windowless studio and started writing from home again. I think subconsciously I’ve started writing more joyous, colourful music and I’ve loved being more collaborative once again. These tracks are my favourite music I’ve produced so far, Tourist will always change with each release and I’ve loved pushing the sound into a new place.”
