ORLANDO WEEKS SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘BIGGER’ LISTEN HERE
November 23, 2021
Orlando Weeks today shares his new single ‘Bigger’; one of many standouts from his highly anticipated sophomore solo album; ‘Hop Up’ out January 14th 2022.
Weeks notes ‘’Bigger is the all stomping little brother to the head nod of Deep Down . Part of the song is about recognising that a person or people can be your world. And if that person or people is growing up right in front of you then in a very actual way their growth is your growth. With a little post rationalising I also realise that the process of making HOP UP was a revelation. Embracing the cloud 9 ethos of the album, opened my mind up to a whole area of music that I’d always consigned to being beyond my jurisdiction.’’
Arriving in the wake of his critically acclaimed debut solo album ‘A Quickening’; Weeks forthcoming record once again leans into themes of new life & parenthood, but whereas his previous work catalogued the emotions, expectations and anxieties that accompany imminent parenthood, Hop Up is an altogether more joyous and life affirming statement. A statement of relieved celebration.
Featuring inspiring contributions from Katy J Pearson, Willie J Healey and Ben Reed (from Frank Ocean’s band), the Bullion produced record will be released on CD, digital formats, and vinyl – available to pre-order & pre-save here
Additionally, Orlando is currently on a run of Sold Out intimate underplay dates ahead of his forthcoming headline tour in March 2022, which includes a show at London’s iconic Barbican Centre.
