UK-based producer/composer William Phillips aka Tourist has released his latest Wash EP, accompanied with visuals for the song “Sleepwalking” featuring Swim Mountain & Esther Joy. The album was released via Gold Atlas.
Wash is the producer’s first release to follow up his 2016 debut album U, and consists of four tracks featuring Swim Mountain & Esther Joy on “Sleepwalking”, JONES on “Apart”, the previously released single “We Stayed Up All Night” featuring Ardyn, and the track “Hush” closes the EP. This album “falls distinctly between the bedroom and the dancefloor,” FADER Media said.
Regarding the music video, “Daniel Brereton’s style is one that I thought would really suit the feel of the song; his work reminds me of Wes Anderson, but through a British lens,” Phillips said. “He really captured the spirit of the song.”
Tourist makes yearning, bittersweet dance tracks, with reputable fans of his artistry such as Flume and Porter Robinson supporting his releases. He also earned his first GRAMMY for co-writing the Sam Smith hit “Stay With Me”. His single, “Run” landed with #1 spots on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart and Hype Machine.
“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.”
Wash is available on a variety of platforms. You can stream it on Spotify, Apple Music, or Youtube. Also, a handful of Australian show dates remain for New Year’s Eve and the early part of 2018. Grab any available tickets here.
