THE TRACK IS TAKEN FROM FUTURE UTOPIA’S NEW EP WE WERE WE STILL ARE OUT 23 JUNE VIA THE ORCHARD/70HZ
World renowned artist, songwriter, musician and producer Fraser T Smith has today revealed the details of his brand-new Future Utopia single Make It Home featuring TOMI, out now via The Orchard/70Hz. The new single is taken from Future Utopia’s upcoming new EP We Were We Still Are, out 23 June and is the follow up to Your Love featuring Biig Piig.
Speaking about the new single, Fraser says:
‘Make It Home’ came from a session a few years ago with the incredible artist TOMI. We wrote this in a day and spent most of the time laughing and joking. I’d never forgotten the track and really wanted to reimagine it for a Future Utopia release. The lyrics feel poignant for the last track on the EP where we come full circle, back to where it all began.’
Last week Fraser announced details of his new ‘Future Producer Academy’ in partnership with PPL and the Music Producers Guild. Aimed at tackling the pervasive issue of under representation in the music industry, the new Academy will select promising producers to work with Fraser and his extensive network to build their success via a combination of financial backing and unique educational opportunities.
In addition to the TOMI, Biig Piig and Kae Tempest singles, Future Utopia’s new EP We Were We Still Are includes This Time, which sees Fraser singing lead vocals for the first time on a Future Utopia release. The EP’s previous singles have received a great reaction across press ‘a new psychedelic rock sound laced with great vocals from Kae Tempest’ (Evening Standard), radio with A List support at BBC 6 Music and with editorial playlists (The Times, The Independent, New Music Friday & Brand New UK).
Fraser T Smith is a multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed artist, producer, songwriter and musician – one of the most in demand creators in contemporary music today. He has co-written, mixed and produced 7 Number One singles in the UK, 2 Billboard Number One singles in the US, and contributed to 18 Number 1 albums. Having spent most of his career producing and songwriting for some of the biggest artists in the world (Adele, Stormzy, Sam Smith, Florence and the Machine, Drake, Gorillaz, Kano, Dave and more) he released his own debut album, 12 Questions, in October 2020, under the moniker ‘Future Utopia’. 12 Questions features an incredible roll call of some of Britain’s most vital and brilliant artists, including Stormzy, Dave, Kano, Ghetts, Bastille, Es Devlin, Simon Armitage and Idris Elba and discusses issues including faith, freedom, race, gender, wealth, equality and ecology.
In 2021 Fraser won the Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Contemporary Song’ for Children Of The Internet, his collaboration with Dave, taken from 12 Questions. The win is the latest plaudit for a creative partnership between Smith and Dave that has seen the pair win two previous Ivor Novello Awards, first in 2018 with ‘Best Contemporary Song’ for Dave’s Question Time, before they went on to win the prestigious prize again in 2020 for Dave’s track Black (from the Mercury Prize winning album Psychodrama), which they also performed together at The BRIT Awards in 2020.
Future Utopia’s new single Make It Home featuring TOMI is out now. The EP We Were We Still Are is released on 23 June.
