Luke Sital-Singh comes to Sacred Trinity on tour, offering Manchester fans a chance to see him before he re-locates to Los Angeles in January.
The tour follows the recent release of his latest single The Last Day. The track marks his imagining of his last day alive, crafting hope and lift out of mortality. Speaking about the track, Luke Sital-Singh commented, “I had no intention of writing another song about death, I guess that’s just the happy fun-time guy that I am. I like how a song about the end is coming out first. Putting everything in perspective again as a new phase begins.”
Luke Sital-Singh released his debut single Fail For You in 2012, introducing the world his deft ability to craft songs with a mesmerizing, piercing emotional quality. The song went on to be featured in numerous TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy. At the end of 2013, Sital-Singh was featured in the BBC’s Sound of 2014 list and signed to Parlophone records, who released his debut album The Fire Inside later that year.
After a couple of years touring the world and opening for artist such as Villagers, The Staves, Martha Wainwright and Angus and Julia Stone, in 2017 Sital-Singh released his critically-acclaimed sophomore record Time Is A Riddle. The album’s lead single Killing Me has had 10 million plays on Spotify, and Luke’s combined streams since 2015 are at almost 120 million.
Speaking about his songwriting, he explains, “I like writing about the heavy things. There’s a lot of shallow stuff out there and that’s fine for a certain context. My fun is diving as deep as I can. Inside myself and, if I can, inside others and writing songs that are as honest as I can make them. Honest to the struggles we all face, the sadness but more importantly, the hope.”
