U.K. artist William Phillips (aka Tourist) has released new music. His twinkling new single "Apollo" arrived over the weekend.

"I’m interested in exploring human themes through sound. Family, mental health, loss, love," the Grammy-winning producer says of the newly released track. "I sit at home by myself most days, writing music. It’s quite an insular life, and it can be claustrophobic, but I suppose much of my new music is an attempt to produce work that is outwardly facing. I want my music to connect and to tell a human story through samples, sounds and melody."

Phillips also has a video directed by Nigel Shafran which will be released soon. In addition to the new music, he has also launched Tourist Essentials, a curated collection of Tourist music dating back to his 2012 material.
