George Ezra To Release Sophomore Album “Staying At Tamara’s” On March 23
George Ezra has announced his sophomore album Staying At Tamara’s, due for release on March 23.The album will be available via Columbia Records on digital, CD and vinyl formats. Three years after the release of his 4x platinum, number one debut album Wanted On Voyage, George returns with a collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love,” which George penned while traveling and living abroad.
Just like Wanted On 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.”
