UK-based Grammy-winning producer and composer Tourist (aka William Phillips) has shared his new single Bunny, which is lifted from his upcoming album (the details will be announced very soon). Bunny begins with a floating vocal line, rim-shots and a glistening arpeggio as a muscular beat builds around the track. Take a listen to the track via YouTube below.

“I find the process of writing to be an endlessly enjoyable pursuit, and my new resolve is to share as much music as possible with people. Bunny is a term of endearment for the woman I love, and also my new single.”

Prior to the release of Bunny, Tourist shared Elixir [watch the Dillon Moore directed video here] and announced a fresh run of USA/UK/EU dates hot on the heels of his sophomore album ‘Everyday,’ which was released in February this year.

Tourist first appeared in 2012 with his self-titled debut EP and has since gone on to release two full lengths, ‘U’ (2016) and ‘Everyday’ (2019) alongside several more EPs and also remaining active as a remixer, writer and producer, including winning a Grammy for co-writing the Sam Smith hit Stay With Me and remixing artists like Christine and the Queens, Wolf Alice and Chvrches.

Along with the single, he has also announced Summer dates in the USA + Fall UK/EU tour dates, which are on sale here. Check out the list of dates below.
