St. Lundi announces debut album 'The Island'

The British St. Lundi announces his first album 'The Island' and releases a new single 'Different Houses'. 'The Island' is set to release on September 20th and is available for pre-order now!

 At the age of 20, St. Lundi left his hometown of Hayling Island just off England’s south coast and headed to London in the hope of starting a career in music. Despite the odds being against him and having just £100 to his name, his plan somehow worked, breakthrough moments collaborating with Seeb and Kygo first earned our attention before his solo career took off ‘Nights Like This’ acculumating 80m+ streams and charting across Europe, followed up by Radio 2 playlists for ‘Ready To Be Loved’ and ‘Fall’.

‘Different Houses’ provides an instantly engaging introduction into St. Lundi’s artistic style. It opens with the soft, affecting confessional, “The first time I felt heartache I was twelve,” before he shares the emotions and raw observations that he and his siblings experienced following their parents’ split. The song’s production grows in intensity: his voice ascending to new heights while sparse beats evolve into dramatic drum fills. Despite the song’s heart-rending emotions, the way it escalates suggests that St. Lundi has found peace with the situation, even if those tough childhood memories still linger.

St. Lundi says, “‘Different Houses’ is a really special song to me and one I will always hold close to my heart. It is about the day my parents told me, my brother and sister that they were splitting up. It took me years to write this song in a way I felt happy and comfortable with it, also in a way that didn’t paint my parents as villains. At the beginning of 2023 I started therapy for the first time, and three months later ‘Different Houses’ was written. I almost needed to heal before I could see how the song needed to be written. Even though my parents split and my sister lived away from my brother and I, we were all still a family, just living in ‘Different Houses’.”

All of the songs on ‘The Island’ were written or co-written by St. Lundi. His collaborators include Matt James (Tom Gregory, M-22), Ollie Green (Ella Henderson, Tom Grennan), Tom Fuller (Tom Walker), Jez Ashurt (Maisie Peters, Sam Ryder) and Martin Luke Brown (BTS, Sam Tompkins).

His own career was soon picking up momentum too with 2021’s ‘Nights Like This’ becoming his biggest track to date with airplay chart positions across Europe and 80 million streams to date, while his rising status was boosted by ‘Ready To Be Loved’ and ‘Fall’.

His live shows quickly progressed too, supporting the likes of Kodaline, Tom Gregory, Leon and ClockClock alongside intimate but enthusiastic headline gigs. He started 2024 with a pop-up tour across Europe, and expect far more UK and international touring to be announced as the year unfolds.
