George Ezra dropped his debut full-length Wanted on Voyage in Europe this summer where it hit No. 1 in his native UK. Following in the footsteps of fellow chart-topping Brits like Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith, the 21-year-old is promoting his album around stateside and already finding success at alternative radio with his debut U.S. single "Budapest."
We previously spoke to the singer-songwriter about touring the U.S. and now get a little more insight into the Wanted on Voyage album that is expected to drop stateside soon.
"So I found out people used to write ['wanted on voyage'] on their luggage when they were boarding boats, like years ago," he says, explaining the album title. "You would write 'wanted on voyage' on what you wanted [with you], and everything else would go into the cargo, and you wouldn't see it for the journey. I like the idea of people wanting the album on their journey."
