George Ezra Releases New Song “Green Green Grass”
British singer-songwriter George Ezra released a new song “Green Green Grass” on April 22, 2022.
The song is the second single off of his upcoming third studio album “Gold Rush Kid”, following “Anyone for You (Tiger Lily)”.
It was written by Joel Pott, Stuart Price and George Ezra. Produced by Joel Pott and Stuart Price.
“I was on holiday in St Lucia with a few friends at Christmas 2018, with two of my closest mates from home,” George Ezra explained of the song in a press release. “We were in this beach bar, drinking homemade rum punch and Piton, the local lager, flip-flopping between the two, pissing about with three local guys who worked there. And this music started up, three streets back from the sea.”
He continued, “After about half an hour, I had to go see what it was. And there was a street party going on, with three different sound systems, people cooking in the street. I asked a woman what was going on and she told me it was a funeral – for three people. They were celebrating three lives! I thought: that is not how we do this at home. And it's really beautiful.”
The new album is set to be released on June 10, 2022. It is his first album in four years.
He told Apple Music about the album, “I would say that 50% of it is festival sing-along songs and 50% of it is reflective.”
George Ezra embarks on the UK tour this fall. The tour kicks off at M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on September 13, 2022.
