George FitzGerald returns with new track Burns
17th October 2017
Following a worldwide premiere as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1 last night, George FitzGerald is pleased to mark his return with new track, ‘Burns’ – Listen to it HERE. ‘Burns’ is the first new music from FitzGerald since his 2015 debut album, Fading Love and is a nod towards his forthcoming second album, due to land in Spring 2018.
On ‘Burns’ FitzGerald says:
"The track started life as a kind of strange studio experiment making a beatless chant out of loads of contrasting vocal samples, and then morphed over time. It works as a moment on a dancefloor but at heart it's meant to be quite meditative".
With the announcement of ‘Burns’, FitzGerald is primed to debut his live show. After cutting his teeth as an international touring DJ, FitzGerald shifts his focus to the live sphere, proving himself to be a rare example of an artist capable of making the transition from DJ playing tracks for club consumption to composer of full length LPs and live musician. With FitzGerald at the helm alongside his band consisting of Mike Lesirge of Bonobo’s touring band plus drummer Guillaume Jambel, the debut live show takes place at London’s prestigious Hoxton Hall this November with another following in Amsterdam. In addition, FitzGerald and his band will support Bonobo on his final tour date of 2017 at Brighton Dome. Dates can be found below.
