“I went away to Belgium in November for a month to this studio in the woods in the middle of nowhere,” Sigala explains of the record. “I think I saw about three people while I was there. I just saw it as an opportunity to experiment.”
“They’re songs that I’m really proud of and I’m really happy they’re able to see the light of day,” he says. “If I’d just kept releasing singles that would have never happened.”
He’ll follow the summer with a UK headline tour across the UK.
Sigala launched into the mainstream in 2015 with his releases Easy Love and Sweet Lovin’ featuring Bryn Christopher. He has since collaborated with the likes of DJ Fresh and Imani, as well as Craig David, Digital Farm Animals, Kato and more.
