Luke Sital-Singh’s has released new single “Can’t Get High”, lifted from his album Dressing Like A Stranger available September 2nd.

“Can’t Get High” was co-written by Ben Cramer, a.k.a. Old Sea Brigade, who previously collaborated with Luke on the acclaimed 2020 EP All The Ways You Sing In The Dark. The upbeat track pairs a high register chant with a luminous harmony as Luke assures “Can’t get high ‘till you come down.” Sital-Singh explains the song is about, “Looking for meaning in the rubble of a failed relationship. Going over memories, trying to find the positives when things go wrong.”

The video for “Can’t Get High”, directed by Glashier, was shot at Berlin’s iconic Tempelhof Airport. Closed to aircraft since 2008, the runway is now used for recreational purposes by cyclists, runners, families, dog-walkers, dancers, and – as seen in the video – roller skaters….

The follow-up to 2019’s A Golden State, which preceded his move to Los Angeles, Dressing Like A Stranger was written and recorded in California, with Luke initially working alone at home in Los Feliz as COVID-19 descended upon the world. He later rented a studio and cut a few songs by himself before enlisting fellow Brit and singer-songwriter Dan Croll as co-producer and Tchad Blake (Fiona Apple, The Black Keys, Elvis Costello) for mixing.

“I love collaboration,” Luke explains. “When I started this album, I missed that part of the process. Dan enjoys the puzzle of music. He’ll have so many different versions of songs, whereas I’m more instinctual. It was nice to have Dan say, ‘We don’t need this!’ Dan saw the music from a bird’s eye view, maintained the momentum, figured out the puzzle, and pushed me to do more takes than I would’ve alone.”

Sital-Singh will support Passenger on his European Tour in August & September before embarking on a headline UK tour, which starts in Bristol at The Fleece on September 25th and culminates at London’s Lafayette on October 9th…
