The artist formerly known as East India Youth returns with a new single and details of a new London show

William Doyle, formerly known as East India Youth, has shared a new track called 'Nobody Else Will Tell You'. You can hear it above.

The track follows on from 'Millersdale', which he released last summer as his first new material in three years. 'Nobody Else Will Tell You', which features Laura Misch on saxophone, is set to feature on Doyle's forthcoming album, details for which will be announced soon.

"Both this track and the album in general explore the theme of the suburban environment," says a press release, "inspired by William's experience of having grown up in that world and how he eventually saw beyond its ordinary stereotypes, to something that was illuminating and inspirational."

Speaking about the track, Doyle says: "'Nobody Else Will Tell You' became about the exploration of your residential surroundings and affording them the same kind of curiosity and wonder that a woodland or a mountain range is meant to inspire within you. People are very accustomed and attracted to this idea of 'finding yourself' in nature, but I feel that I found myself just as easily in winding avenues and front gardens. If we were more in touch with the psychedelic possibility of what we are constantly told is banal or mundane, we'd have greater respect for it and ourselves."

William Doyle will play live at London's The Courtyard on October 31. Tickets for that show are on sale here.
