Olly Murs Releases Intoxicating New Single, ‘I Hate You When You’re Drunk’

New single, ‘I Hate You When You’re Drunk’ is out now and taken from Olly Murs’ upcoming album, ‘Marry Me’. The new album is set for release on December 2nd, through EMI Records. Additionally, Olly has announced an 11 date UK arena tour in April and May next year.

‘I Hate You When You’re Drunk’ can be streamed and downloaded here.

Written by Olly, David Stewart, and Jessica Agombar, and produced by David Stewart and mixed by Ash Howes, ‘I Hate You When You’re Drunk’ is one of the stand out tracks from Olly’s much anticipated new album, ‘Marry Me’.

An anthemic pop track, it’s bound to be one we’ll all be singing from the rooftops this Christmas season!

Speaking about the song, Olly says,

“I thought it was a fun song to write as there have been so many times where a friend, family member or loved one has had one too many,” says Olly. “It’s a light-hearted take from the sober person’s point of view. We all know someone!!!!”
