Billy Lockett finishes breakthrough year with new song

Comments are Off

Singer-songwriter Billy Lockett has capped a big twelves months by releasing new song ‘Covered In Chaos’ today.

The song was the opening number for his Royal Derngate show back in May of this year, and it’s lyrical content – “Living on no sleep/Barely alive” – accurately reflects his recent hectic schedule. The year began for the Northampton singer with a sold-out London show at Union Chapel, before tours of Europe and much recording/promo work in the summer months. He ended the year with two tour supports: arena’s with Jeff Lynne’s ELO and theatres with Lewis Capaldi. A live session on Radio 2 seemed to confirm his status as a guy to pay serious attention to. 

Following his moves into AOR and dance-pop at various moments in 2018, this song is a return to the role of confessional balladeer that he made his name with. It’s very affecting, as you would expect from a man at the top of his game right now.

2019 will see Lockett out on a headline UK and European tour in his biggest venues yet.
