Years & Years are pleased to announce details of their new single 'King' which is due for release on March 1st on Polydor Records, having premiered as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record last night.
2014 was nothing short of career changing for Olly, Emre and Mikey - who came out of the blocks with their single 'Real' in spring. Having initially grabbed the attention of key tastemakers they quickly cemented their status as a surefire act to watch across the board with follow-up singles 'Take Shelter' and more recently the chart bothering 'Desire'. The videos across these singles are have received a staggering 8.8 million views combined.
The tail end of 2014 has seen the stars align even more for Years & Years. Off the back of support slots for Clean Bandit and Sam Smith, a performance on Later... With Jools Holland and their Radio 1 A-listed latest single - they were shortlisted for the much coveted Brits Critics Choice Award and named on the BBC Sound Poll for 2015- the winner of which will be announced later this week.
But for now - to the music in hand and the year ahead - new single 'King' has been a stand out live for the band since its creation nearly a year ago and was always a clear contender to be the track that would enable Years & Years to stamp their future-spective pop mark all over 2015.
Having spent much of this year making their mark internationally, Years & Years have already been booked for various European festivals throughout the year. Before this though, the band head to New York to play two headline shows on the 26th & 27th January before they embark on their first ever UK headline tour, which completely sold out three months in advance and includes two nights at London's Heaven.
