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.
