‘Staying At Tamara’s’ is out next week (March 23). It’s Ezra’s second album to date, following on from 2014 debut ‘Wanted on Voyage’.
Like his recent clips for ‘Hold My Girl’ and ‘Pretty Shining People’, Ezra’s ‘Saviour’ lyric video sees him doing his own song at karaoke, showing off some dance moves and downing pints in between verses. Watch below.
Ezra also recently announced details of a massive UK tour – including the biggest headline show of his career at London’s SSE Arena in Wembley.
The singer-songwriter has a busy summer of touring ahead, and will now cap off the year with a string of huge shows in Newcastle, Hull, Glasgow, London and Swindon.
Parts of Ezra’s new album deal with his battles with anxiety.
Speaking to NME about the impact of him discussing his anxiety through song, Ezra described it as “an ongoing conversation” – but one that needs to happen.
“I am by no means an oracle of answers when it come to mental health,” Ezra told NME. “I just believe very strongly that something as simple as talking or listening can make the world of difference. When I started to write my second record I felt that what I needed to do more than anything was to be honest, for myself more than anything else. I’m lucky that what I do for a job demands that I write in some capacity. And writing about what I was feeling helped more than I could have imagined.”
He continued: “Mostly because of the reaction from those who heard the songs, it became very evident very quickly that I was by no means alone. And I guess that’s why I believe so strongly that conversation is key. Once you realise you’re not a freak for thinking the way you do, you are not alone. It becomes that bit easier to approach your own situation.”
