Following the recent announcement of his highly anticipated debut album, titled U, Tourist aka William Phillips has revealed a stunning animated CGI video for the first single “To Have You Back”. The kaleidoscopic visual was created by rising directors Davy Evans (credits include The xx and Zomby) and Jason Drew (credits include Thom Yorke/Modeselektor) who together have created a gorgeous universe to accompany this track.

 

Speaking about the video, Evans and Drew commented, “The video is an abstract story of the decay and breakup of a relationship but also the eventual meet up and rekindling. Its told through a series of vignettes representing everyday still lifes that are taken over with abstract black liquid (for the breakup) then colour (meeting again) and finally neon explosions (rekindling).”

 

Last year was a stellar one for Tourist, seeing him perform live at Coachella and Pitchfork Paris as well as touring live through Europe and North America and winning the GRAMMY Song of The Year as co-writer of Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’. Tourist will head out on tour again in May, with tickets for the UK and Irish shows on sale HERE.
