George Ezra announces new album 'Staying At Tamara's'

George Ezra today announces his highly anticipated sophomore album Staying At Tamara's, due for release on March 23rd. Three years after the release of his platinum debut album Wanted On Voyage, George returns with a collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love”. Uninhibited, feel-good new single ‘Paradise’ previews the new album and is available now to stream and download.

Just like Wanted On A Voyage, Staying At Tamara's was written, created and inspired by George’s travels, including spells on the Isle of Skye; at a pig farm in Norfolk; in a former cornflour shed in Kent; a converted cow shed in north Wales; and in an Airbnb in Barcelona owned by the Tamara of the album’s title. The result is a finger-snapping, brass-blaring, wind-in-the-hair album that shines with positivity and encouragement, alongside moments of more subdued reflection.

George explains that “‘Paradise’ started life as a melody that I couldn’t get out of my head… Months later I set to writing a song highlighting the undeniable feeling of meeting somebody new and falling for them. We often find ourselves second guessing feelings that we have and trying to work out what it is that they might mean. But with love there is no uncertainty, it is what it is and I liken it to paradise.”

George plays his first show of the year, a one-off long-since-sold-out intimate gig at Shoreditch Town Hall, on 31 January 2018, before kicking off his world tour in Australia this March.

George Ezra is one of the biggest selling male artists of the decade. His debut album Wanted On A Voyage is certified 4x platinum in the UK, and was amongst the top 10 biggest selling artist albums in this country in both 2014 and 2015, reaching #1 in the Official UK Chart and spending 122 weeks in the chart overall. In little more than 18 months Ezra went from virtual unknown to one of the international breakthrough artists of recent times: taking in a top 10 album in 10 countries; three sold out UK tours; nominations for four BRITs, one BBC Music Award and an Ivor Novello.
