Last year, London-based producer Tourist released his debut album U, which placed fifth on our list of Top 20 Electronic Albums of 2016. Now today, he has made his awaited return with the first release since the album “We Stayed Up All Night”. The single is dangerously catchy and receives vocal accompaniment from UK collaborator, Ardyn. William Phillips, aka Tourist, played this track at Coachella and now it is finally being unleashed just in time for summer.
“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.” – William Phillips
“We Stayed Up All Night” is bright and mellow. Tourist captures the vocals from Ardyn and compliments them with uplifting synths and laid-back percussion. “We Stayed Up All Night” is an incredible resurgence from Tourist and we cannot wait to hear what else he has been working on… Enjoy!
