Talking about his new single, Will says: ‘’Fallin’ 4 U’’ was written for that special someone who you can’t help but get the feels for… You know it’s better to just be friends because they don’t feel the same, but you can’t help gravitating towards them. Here I am acknowledging the chemical reaction in my brain and trying to understand what it is: Infatuation.’
It’s been a huge year for Will: after releasing his debut EP Trust and selling out his first ever headline show at The Courtyard Theatre in a matter of hours, Will supported Justin Bieber alongside Halsey on his Purpose Tour for two shows at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, embarked on a headline tour in September, and performed at a string of festivals over the summer including The Great Escape and Wildlife.
Before Will Heard made waves as an artist in his own right, he was known around the globe for features with Tourist, Anne-Marie and Rudimental, Kygo, Klangkarussell ‘Sonnentanz’ (Sun Don’t Shine) which entered the UK charts #3 and most recently, the Dillon Francis single ‘Anywhere’ which has been streamed almost 35 million times. Will has written with the likes of Rudimental, MNEK, Jess Glynne, Salaam Remi, Elli Ingram and Jimmy Napes to name a few. His unique blend of jazz, hip-hop and soul, with an added element of funk, is a sound distinctive to Will and inspired by an eclectic mix of artists including Prince, Jimi Hendrix, Nina Simone, Led Zepplin, Amy Winehouse, Parliament Funkadelics, Bob Marley and Lauryn Hill.
He has spent 2017 working on his debut album with the likes of Eg White, Al Shux, Billy Mann and Stuart Zender in both London and LA.
