UK electronic music artist Tourist—real name William Phillips—has returned with Everyday, the long-awaited follow-up to his 2016 debut, U.
The Grammy-winning producer’s new album, which includes previously released singles “Hearts,” “Apollo” and “Emily,” offers a different sound to his earlier work. While U collected funky, bass-driven house party jams, Everyday features lush synths and laid-back production.
On the album’s sole collaborative track “Love Theme,” Tourist enlisted fellow English act Shura for a dazzling house-inspired number that dwells on the need for affection. “I don’t want to be the center of attention, but I want your love,” Shura sings.
“I’m interested in exploring human themes through sound. Family, mental health, loss, love,” Tourist said of his new album in an earlier press statement. “I sit at home by myself most days, writing music. It’s quite an insular life, and it can be claustrophobic, but I suppose much of my new music is an attempt to produce work that is outwardly facing.”
