Will Heard, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter known for his soulful vocals and unique sound, is set to release his new single, “Flash Light”, on May 26th. The track is taken from his highly anticipated debut album, due for release later this year.
London-born Heard, to date best known for his platinum selling No.3 hit “Sonnentanz: Sun Don’t Shine” with Klangkarussell, as well as multiple collaborations, both on record and live, with chart topping act Rudimental, returns with a solo single that captures a perfect blend of soulful vocals, stacked harmonies and funk inflected electronic beats.
Written by Heard with Grammy nominated Linden Jay (Doja Cat, Stormzy, Chlöe Bailey) and MXXWLL (Ty Dolla Sign, Snoop Dogg), who also produced the track, “Flash Light” is an electrifying song that showcases Will Heard’s captivating range-y vocals, unique tone and on point songwriting skills.
It’s not every musician who influences as diverse as Herbie Hancock, Celine Dion, Sly Stone, Missy Elliott and, er, Lisa Simpson, among his inspirations, but then there’s not many artists quite like Will Heard.
