Years & Years are back with their brand new single ‘Starstruck‘, out now on Polydor Records. The single is the first new Years & Years music since 2018’s much-loved second album ‘Palo Santo’.
It follows lead singer, Olly Alexander’s leading role in Channel 4/HBO’s huge show, ‘It’s A Sin’. The show has smashed all records on All 4 since its premiere in January, with over 18 million views to date (the platform’s biggest ever instant box-set) and an incredible reception from fans and critics alike.
Olly Alexander’s superstar-status graces new heights on ‘Starstruck’, an irresistible, instant-classic Years & Years anthem about human connection (and the cosmos). Olly says: “Starstruck came together one night at a studio in the countryside outside of London. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d seen so many stars, you get used to them not being there when you live in the city. Since we’ve all had to stop, all I’ve wanted to do is go out and dance. So I’ve been putting all that pent up energy into the music.
“‘Starstruck’ is about the rush you get when you’re with somebody you’re really into, it’s about holding onto a good feeling and not letting it go. Like most of us I’ve spent the past year at home, and I wanted to create something super positive and fun for people (and myself) to bop along too. Whatever we’re doing or wherever we are in life, I think we all deserve three minutes of interstellar ecstasy.”
