George Ezra’s new album is inspired by a pig farm in Norfolk

Amidst a hectic month in Australia performing sold out shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, English singer-songwriter George Ezra has released a new album featuring a collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love.” Not what you would expect from an album written mostly in sheds, however, Ezra’s new release is a product of beauty that has already received early critical acclaim.

The album is inspired by Ezra’s travels and was written in many of the different places he stayed including the Isle of Skye, a pig farm in Norfolk, a former cornflour shed in Kent, a converted cowshed in North Wales and in an Air BnB in Barcelona owned by the Tamara of the album’s title.

Following the album’s release, the fifth track on the album ‘Paradise’ quickly climbed the UK iTunes chart to  #1 and is currently at a peak at #16 on the Spotify UK chart.

Closer to home, Australians have really shown their love for Ezra with staying at tamara’s at #1 on the Australian iTunes Album chart.
