Billy Lockett Releases Double A Side

‘Fading Into Grey’ / ‘My Only Soul’ Plays Shepherds Bush Empire October 9th Announces tour with Lewis Capaldi

Listen to the tracks here:

Up and coming singer-songwriter Billy Lockett today releases two brand new singles ‘Fading Into Grey’ and ‘My Only Soul’ via East West Records. Billy plays his biggest headline show to date at the Shepherds Bush Empire October 9th and supports Lewis Capaldi on his autumn UK tour.

The two contrasting singles showcase Billy’s superb breadth as a songwriter, ranging from downtempo balladry on ‘Fading Into Grey’ to the racing, anthemic chorus of ‘My Only Soul’, both with Billy’s deft piano playing at their core.

“Fading Into Grey is about being honest when you have fallen out of love in a relationship, instead of leaving it to drag on,“ says Billy. “My Only Soul is about wishing you believed in ghosts, because at least being haunted would mean you could see a loved one again”.

These two new tracks follow previous 2018 singles ‘Feels So Good’ and ‘Empty House’. Billy’s debut EP ‘Burn It Down’ reached Number 1 on the singer songwriter chart and received over 6 million streams.

With champions from BBC Radio 1, 6Music, The Telegraph, The Independent, Metro, Evening Standard and The Times, support slots with Lana Del Rey and Birdy under his belt, as well as multiple sold-out London dates, including a Union Chapel show complete with string quartet in February, Billy is set to make 2018 his own.
