Tourist is due to release his 'Patterns' EP on Monday (21st April) via Method Records. He is also pleased to announce a string of UK live dates in May with support coming from Boy In A Movie.
The eagerly anticipated new EP showcases Tourist's shift to a more progressive and intricate understanding of his role as producer that lead him to working with vocalists for the first time. Within Tourist there has always lurked the potential for a massive pop track, and here he's birthed two potential hits. 'I Can't Keep Up' is a stripped back club-pop track, with soaring vocals from Will Heard, while the EP's title track, 'Patterns' opens with hints of italo and disco, as Lianne La Havas croons gently. This track will be played by Annie Mac this Friday, and will be released later on in June.
Tourist is also excited to set out on tour in May across the UK to play a string of dates up and down the country. Kicking off in Edinburgh on the 1st, he will reach London's Basing House on the 15th. Full tour dates are listed below.
