Tourist hints at new collaboration with Kacy Hill

4 Feb


Tourist has hinted at a new collaboration with Kacy Hill.

“So @KacyHill likes to do handstands in the studio” he posted to his official Twitter profile on Wednesday (February 04, 2015).

It is yet to be known whether the session is intended for a future Tourist release or Hill’s debut album.

The British hitmaker – real name William Phillips – co-wrote “Stay with Me” for Sam Smith along with Jimmy Napes, which debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart and peaked to number two on the US Billboard Chart.

His songwriting and production resume includes further works with Years and Years [Polydor Records], Jessie Ware [PMR Records / Island Records] and Lianne La Havas [Warner Bros. Records].

Meanwhile, Hill is expected to release her first studio collection later this year via Kanye West’s label G.O.O.D. Music.

The American record company houses other artists and musicians including John Legend, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, Benny Cassette, Jeff Bhasker, Hudson Mohawke, Mos Def and Ernest “No I.D.” Wilson.

Watch the music video for Tourist’s current single “Illuminate” below.
