After becoming one of the biggest breakout stars in the UK with his debut LP Wanted On Voyage, George Ezra is back with a brand new single: Don't Matter Now.
The song is the first advance of his upcoming long-awaited new album and was premiered yesterday at Annie Mac's Hottest Record in BBC1 Radio. “I had to work out what I wanted the album to be about,” George told Annie. “What it is you’re going into and why you’re doing it. The first trip I did was a month in Barcelona, which was pretty amazing. I’ve always loved it, I was like, let’s go back. I rented a bedroom off a stranger online. I was like, do you really want to do that George? But you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone”.
Don’t Matter Now is a joyful ode to checking out, far from the sobreity of hit singles Budapest or Blame On Me: “I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time now that I’m back on tour,” he continued. “It’s having a reason – whatever it is you do, it’s good to know you’re wanted. It’s not very cool to be happy. I’m going to bring it back!
The track’s technicolor video was shot in Barcelona and is directed by Marc Oller. Watch it right here!
