Tourist is back with his latest release “Holding On” featuring pianist Niia and one of our 2015 Artists to Watch, Josef Salvat. Phillips has had a pretty successful 2015 so far, a single with Years & Years, a Grammy for co-writing Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” and performing in London to a sold out crowd at Oslo.
The newest offering premiered as Radio 1 host, Annie Mac’s, “Hottest Record” and will be available for purchase on May 24th via Polydor Records. Tourist explains the track “defines the tone of the album, both sonically and conceptually,” going further to say he “hadn’t heard many duets for a while and I thought it would be an interesting way to convey something that might have been slightly one-dimensional had it only been through one person’s perspective. It’s the record I’m most proud of.”
