Saint Raymond has released his brand new single, ‘Echo’, a bright indie-pop anthem and his first release with Cooking Vinyl.
He releases the song today as he celebrates the start of his UK headline tour, which kicks off this evening in Norwich and will see him play 16-dates across the country. Tickets are available here.
Regarding the tour and his new single Saint Raymond says, “I’m so happy to be getting back on the road and playing shows every night on one of the longest headline tours I’ve ever done.”
“I’ll be playing some new music including my new single,” he continues. “‘Echo’ is a fun, upbeat track that came together really easily when I was writing it. The song is about how opposites in a relationship are sometimes what makes it work. I can’t wait to play it live!”
Speaking about his new deal with Cooking Vinyl he says, “I’m very happy and excited to be joining the Cooking Vinyl roster. They are an amazing team and I cannot wait to work with them on my second album, which feels like it has been a long time coming. The chance to go ahead and fulfill that is amazing. I’m so happy with the songs I’ve been writing and very excited about what is to come.”
Saint Raymond first came to prominence with his debut EP, ‘Escapade’ in 2013, which reached the Top 3 in the iTunes chart, along with his two 2014 EPs, ‘Young Blood’, and ‘Ghosts’.
His debut album ‘Young Blood’ reached the UK Top 10 upon release in 2015. It achieved great praise from the broadsheets and indie tastemakers, while also receiving strong support from Radio 1. Zane Lowe was a big fan of Saint Raymond at the station, featuring him as his ‘Hottest Record In The World’ and inviting him to perform a Maida Vale session.
In 2017 he returned with the release of the ‘A Light That Blinds’ EP on Never Fade Records. The EP clocked up millions of plays on Spotify and its singles ‘Nightcrawling’ and ‘We Are Fire’ achieved strong Radio 1 support.
Saint Raymond’s feel-good indie anthems have also captivated arenas, where he supported Ed Sheeran throughout the UK and Europe in 2014. He’s also played with the likes of HAIM and Jake Bugg on major tours throughout the country.
