PRAISE FOR LUKE HEMMINGS

“A shimmering power ballad”
Billboard

“This is a man embarking on bringing into our lives his very own ideas,
and it sounds pretty big, to be honest…it’s bold, it’s rewarding”

Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1)

“The project’s first two singles [‘Starting Line’ and ‘Motion’] move Hemmings
into a more alternative space in the pop world, taking 5SOS’ penchant for pop hooks
and fusing it with the sweeping orchestral feel of records like Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die’”

NME

“Luke Hemmings reckons with the passage of time”
NYLON

“Both parts emotional and thrilling”
Bridget Hustwaite (triple j)

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Luke Hemmings has today released his emotionally charged new single, ‘Place In Me‘. The track is lifted from his forthcoming debut solo album When Facing The Things We Turn Away From, out next Friday August 13 via Sony / Arista. LISTEN TO ‘PLACE IN ME’ HERE + PRE-ORDER LP HERE.

With ‘Place in Me‘ Luke delivers another twist in his songwriting and artistry, this time showcasing a more tender side to his art. Soft yet vividly vulnerable, Luke’s voice soars like a zephyr while pleading for connection, strength and the embrace of another. The result is a message as intimate and immediately felt as Matty Healy’s most barefaced lyricism – no grandiose production or band members to hide behind, ‘Place In Me‘ is just you and Luke in honest conversation. 

Place In Me‘ follows Luke’s previous releases of ‘Motion‘, premiered globally via Good Nights on triple j, and ‘Starting Line‘, which will also appear on his forthcoming album, When Facing The Things We Turn Away From.  ‘Motion‘ and ‘Starting Line‘, have been met with a sea of support globally, receiving widespread acclaim and support from Wonderland Magazine, RollacoasterBillboardNYLONNMEtriple j, and many more. 

Motivated by pushing his creative limits, Hemmings’ solo debut is a natural and necessary sidestep to help Luke make sense of a decade spent in constant motion. Following his inner-muse and authentic creative self, the result is a definitive, deeply personal record about Luke: the artist, songwriter, musician, and human. The greatest challenges arise from within, and Luke Hemmings‘ solo debut is the outcome of rising to that occasion. 


Place In Me‘ is out now, buy/stream it here.
