“The Gold Rush Kid? That’s me,” says George, reflecting on the title of his third record – a 12-strong suite of marvellous, transporting, elevational songs, that more than anything “sound like me. That’s what ties them together.”
After two blockbuster albums – Wanted On Voyage (2014) and Staying At Tamara’s
(2018), both of which reached number 1 in the UK and sold millions around the world, and the latter of which earned him his first number 1 single in ‘Shotgun’ and won him the 2019 Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist – it was time to return to heart and hearth, with an album written and produced entirely in London with longstanding collaborator Joel Pott.
“‘Anyone For You’ is a patchwork of lyric ideas found in old notebooks and chance moments shared between musicians in the studio,” explains George. “It’s joyous and infectious, and I can’t help but smile every time I sing it. Going through those notebooks, one of the first scribblings that caught his eye was a verse he’d written when he was 23, before even he’d begun work on his second album: “Tiger Lily moved to the city, she’d just turned 21, and I said: here’s my number, hit me up, if you’re needing anyone, and then I can be anyone anyone anyone anyone anyone for you…” It kicks off a sparkling song that speaks of support and encouragement, and builds to a glorious singalong-a-George chorus: “Let me be your light!” The song’s bounce, spring and sunny disposition belies its completion, then its recording, in Pott’s studio in southeast London in 2020. But like the album as a whole, it’s as if Ezra has alchemised the darkness of the last two years into revivifying, invigorating light.
