NEW MUSIC: YEARS & YEARS | SOONER OR LATER
Years & Years is gearing up to release his third album, "Night Call," and he shared a new single, "Sooner Or Later." The forthcoming LP, which will be the first since Years & Years became the solo project of vocalist Olly Alexander earlier this year, will land on January 21, 2022, via Polydor. The song follows three singles already released from the project, including his recent single "Sweet Talker" along with "Crave" and "Starstruck." He Explained that his upcoming third record would be a solo endeavour; Alexander previously explained: “The three of us are still good friends. Mikey will be part of the Y&Y family and play with us live, and Emre will focus on being a writer/producer.” Night Call is Years & Years’ first album since 2018’s "Palo Santo" and was influenced by French house, the 70s and 80s disco and R&B singer Sylvester, hedonism and escapism. At the heart of the record is the idea of looking for love but finding power in yourself instead. At the same time, Alexander takes inspiration from his acting career to embody the perspective of a new character. The record continues Alexander’s exploration of queer life, reflecting his status as a powerful voice for the LGBTQ+ community, and blurs the line between fantasy and reality while capturing the joy and anticipation of going out.
