George Ezra is back with his posi-chill new single 'Don't Matter Now'
The boy is back in town. And by the boy, we mean George ‘Geoff’ Ezra.

After a first album 'Wanted On Voyage' that saw him become one of the biggest selling acts in the country, our George is returning with a brand new single. If you’re in need of a bit of positively positioned chill without ending up nodding off along the way, ‘Don’t Matter Now’ has you sorted.

The track was given a first spin as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record earlier this evening on BBC Radio 1. You can check it out here.



“I had to work out what I wanted the album to be about," George told Annie. "What it is you’re going into and why you’re doing it. The first trip I did was a month in Barcelona, which was pretty amazing. I’ve always loved it, I was like, let’s go back. I rented a bedroom off a stranger online. I was like, do you really want to do that George? But you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone.”

“I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time now that I’m back on tour," he continued. "It’s having a reason - whatever it is you do, it’s good to know you’re wanted. To wake up and think, I know what I’m doing today.

“It’s not very cool to be happy. I’m going to bring it back! The best thing I can do is be honest. Even if people can’t tell that they know, they definitely know whether you’re being honest or not.”
