Tourist – Kin (Official Audio)

Kin” is another expansive display of Tourist’s deft production; beginning with emotive piano chords, it is soon joined by sampled vocals, euphoric drums and expertly arranged synths. Spanning over 5 minutes, “Kin” shows every side of Tourist’s sound and perfectly demonstrates his bittersweet, intoxicating musical sensibility.

Tourist has already unveiled album tracks “So,” “Bunny” and “Elixir” and announced a fresh run of live dates hot on the heels of his sophomore album Everyday which was released in February this year.

Tourist first appeared in 2012 with his self-titled debut EP and has since gone on to release two full lengths, U (2016) and Everyday (2019) alongside several more EPs and also remaining active as a remixer, writer and producer, including winning a GRAMMY for co-writing the Sam Smith hit and remixing artists like Christine and the Queens, Wolf Alice and Chvrches.

Tourist on his upcoming album Wild: “With this new album Wild I wanted to fully embrace my instinctual tendencies as a musician. I’ve tried to set aside my self doubts and share as much music as possible this year, there have been moments when I’ve been far more secretive of my output but it’s been incredibly liberating to keep my fans in the loop in a way that I’ve never done previously.”
