Ahead of the release of new album ‘Hop Up’ on 14th January, Orlando Weeks is sharing his latest single ‘Bigger’.
“Bigger is the all stomping little brother to the head nod of Deep Down,” Orlando notes. “Part of the song is about recognising that a person or people can be your world. And if that person or people is growing up right in front of you then in a very actual way their growth is your growth. With a little post rationalising I also realise that the process of making HOP UP was a revelation. Embracing the cloud 9 ethos of the album, opened my mind up to a whole area of music that I’d always consigned to being beyond my jurisdiction.’’
Check out ‘Bigger’ below!

It follows the release of his second solo album ‘Hop Up’.
‘A Quickening’ found the former Maccabee ruminating on the more pensive aspects of parenthood. ‘Hop Up’ follows to show the more joyful side of the coin with a record rooted in lightness and pleasure.
An irresistibly likeable album, very much in the mould of its creator’s affable, mellow personality.
The run of intimate shows comes before his March headline tour.
