George Shelley is back with his new single, ‘Technicolour’, released via Touch Recordings.
Produced with Alex Beitzke and Bradley Spence (Florence + The Machine, Gabrielle Aplin, Take That), ‘Technicolour’ is a bright and breezy dance-pop anthem which is perfect for the summer months.
With its euphoric chorus, ‘Technicolour’ sees George being unapologetically himself. By doing so, the singer encourages us to be true to ourselves, love who we want to love, and to live a life full of love not hate.
After battling personal tragedy last year including the loss of beloved sister, ‘Technicolour’ is without doubt a song of hope for George and for his fans. The track exudes positivity and reiterates that no matter how hard life gets, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Speaking about ‘Technicolour’, George said in a press release, “Kicking off summer with ‘Technicolour’ feels like a fresh start for me. The song has me rebelling at the top of my lungs against everything I was afraid of in the past, and marks a new era for my music, music that has undeniably helped me through a challenging journey. I just want everyone to really feel the love and joy in the song, and find the happiness and pride in the lyrics.”

George expanded on the importance of ‘Technicolour’ on his Instagram account. “I’ve been afraid of showing my true colours in the past, keeping parts of me a secret for a very long time in fear of being judged, but one thing I’ve learnt is that life is too short for us to cling on to our insecurities and paranoias,” George said. “Love is love and LIFE IS LIFE. You only get to do this once so LIVE LIFE WITH LOVE NOT HATE! The worst kind of hate is self hate, wishing you could change things about yourself you’re afraid of. DON’T BE SCARED. JUST. BE. YOU.”

Technicolour is out tomorrow and I’m feeling a bit (very) emotional. I’ve spent timeeeeee working towards something that I believe in so strongly, and even after confronting hurdle after hurdle, it’s all come down to this moment and I’m undeniably proud. I’ve been afraid of showing my true colours in the past, keeping parts of me a secret for a very long time in fear of being judged, but one thing I’ve learnt is that life is too short for us to cling on to our insecurities and paranoias. Love is love and LIFE IS LIFE. You only get to do this once so LIVE LIFE WITH LOVE NOT HATE! The worst kind of hate is self hate, wishing you could change things about yourself you’re afraid of. DON’T BE SCARED. JUST. BE. YOU. Don’t let anyone tell you who you can and cant be, and if they do, do everything in your power to prove them wrong. I hit a wall last year and the only way past was to break through with strength, and I’m feeling lucky to have been surrounded by the very love and support I needed to keep my strength up. We have to stand up and fight for what we believe in, alone or together, and it doesn’t matter where your from or who you fall in love with, we are all one so let’s start acting like it. I can only hope that there are some of you out there who are going through similar difficulties as I have been through, and can look at this song as a celebration of life and love; a celebration of you. No matter how shit things may seem, and no matter how many times you get thrown on the floor, remember we live on a beautiful planet, in a gorgeous universe full of colour and light. Literally, we’re made of this stuff, all of us. When I realised this and started using the things I was learning to help me heal, it all became a lot clearer. I think its about time humans started treating humans like humans. So lets do this together. I know you’ll have my back, cause our love is in Technicolour, it’s not white or black. G x
George will be celebrating the release of ‘Technicolour’ with a performance at London Pride tomorrow in Trafalgar Square.
Aside from working on new music, George has also been making a documentary with the BBC detailing the hurdles he has faced in life, grief and the various coping mechanisms available.
With a new outlook on life, it’s clear to see that George Shelley is ready to show the world the real him and we couldn’t be more excited to see what he has in store.
