Speaking about new album ‘Night Call’, Alexander said in a statement: “I was writing from a fantastical space, stuck in the same four walls. I wanted to have as much pleasure as possible in the music.”

So far, it’s been previewed by the singles ‘Crave’ and ‘Starstruck’. Following the arrival of ‘Starstruck’ in April, Years & Years recruited Kylie Minogue for a collaborative remix of the single.

Alexander also joined forces with Elton John for a cover of Pet Shop Boys’ ‘It’s A Sin’, with the pair performing the track live at the BRITs 2021.

Elsewhere, Years & Years reimagined Lady Gaga’s ‘Edge Of Glory’ to mark the 10th anniversary of the latter’s 2011 album ‘Born This Way’.
