After a summer laid low in the studio, London producer Tourist has resurfaced with a shiny new Polydor record deal, the promise of an impending debut album, and a slew of UK tour dates scheduled (see below). And, of course, some new music. Today he drops a new video for “Wait," his darkly theatrical comeback track. It's black and white and elemental (see: smoke, water, light), and it doubles as a preview for his live set-up.
“I wanted to try and write a piece of music that was intricate and delicate but still quite intense and beefy," William Phillips, aka Tourist, explained over email. “The sentiment really stems from expecting something to be fixed in a relationship but it never surfacing. It's about longing I suppose."
