RISING STAR Olivia Dean today announces her brand new EP What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays? with her latest single ‘Echo’.
What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays’ is a collection of songs that document the journey of a break up
What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays? follows Olivia’s debut 2019 EP Ok Love You Bye and is out on December 4.
The soulful sounds of her new EP, produced by Felix Joseph, are home to her endearing universal storytelling, with heartfelt contemplations on break-ups, self reflection and growth.
Following the release of ‘The Hardest Part’ this summer, Olivia says her new single ‘Echo’ is about, “the times you need an ear and support for a problem, no matter how big or small.
“It could be a situation with a partner, friend or family member where you don’t need a solution, you just need back up, someone to amplify you.”
About her new What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays? EP, Olivia adds: “I am super proud of all the tracks on this EP and am so excited for everyone to hear them.
“What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays’ is a collection of songs that document the journey of a break up.
“There’s a sad and longing one (What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays?), the upbeat heartbreak one (The Hardest Part), the confused and indecisive one (Out) and a confrontational, angry one (Echo).
“I wanted to cover all bases. I wrote them with a bunch of my favourite collaborators – Oli Bayston, Glen Roberts, Max Wolfgang & Bastian and then Felix Joseph helped me bring them all together on the production.”
After a summer spent out on the road playing socially distanced shows from her custom yellow van, Olivia also announces a headline show for next year at London’s Jazz Cafe on April 13, 2021.
The ‘From Me To You’ tour was inspired by the community spirit of early lockdown and Olivia’s desire to spread some much needed sunshine, and paved the way for artists to safely find a way to get back to playing live again.
Olivia, the van and her band visited everywhere from London to Cornwall to Norfolk, as featured on BBC London News and Blue Peter, with performances NME called “staggeringly beautiful”.
Born and raised in Walthamstow, Olivia Dean caught the eye of London label AMF with her first ever song ‘Reason to Stay’, which she uploaded to Spotify and Soundcloud where it quickly gained hundreds of thousands of streams.
Olivia has been named as New Artist of The Week on Apple, with ‘Password Change’ also being added to Radio 1’s BBC Introducing playlist.
