With his eagerly-awaited third album ‘Gold Rush Kid’ set for release on 10th June, George Ezra has shared anthemic new bop ‘Green Green Grass’.
“I was on holiday in St Lucia with a few friends at Christmas 2018, with two of my closest mates from home,” George explains. “We were in this beach bar, drinking homemade rum punch and Piton, the local lager, flip-flopping between the two, pissing about with three local guys who worked there. And this music started up, three streets back from the sea.
“After about half an hour, I had to go see what it was. And there was a street party going on, with three different sound systems, people cooking in the street. I asked a woman what was going on and she told me it was a funeral – for three people. They were celebrating three lives! I thought: that is not how we do this at home. And it’s really beautiful.”
