Earlier this Summer, UK-based producer Tourist released “We Stayed Up All Night,” a summery follow-up to his 2016 debut album U. With the record receiving across-the-board praise, the single arrived on a bed of high expectations — and it absolutely delivered.
Now, with summer drawing to a close, Tourist has offered new takes on the lively single with a dynamic set of remixes by the UK’s Tom Demac and the avant-garde Matthew Dear. The remix pack also includes an instrumental version of the original track.
Moving forward, William Phillips (aka Tourist) has shared his hope of using his music as a means of reflection.
“With this new music I wanted to make something that was more reflective of who I am now and how my life has changed over the past year. I moved out of my windowless studio and started writing from home again. I think subconsciously I’ve started writing more joyous, colourful music and I’ve loved being more collaborative once again. These tracks are my favourite music I’ve produced so far, Tourist will always change with each release and I’ve loved pushing the sound into a new place.”
