Langston Francis Releases New Single "Waste My Time"
Today, Toronto-based rising star Langston Francis releases his new single “Waste My Time” off his forthcoming sophomore EP Self-Titled, set for release later this year. Click HERE to listen!
The infectious lead single was written by Langston with multi-platinum selling songwriter Neil Ormandy (James Arthur “Say You Won’t Let Go,” Bebe Rexha, Liam Payne) and producer and multi-instrumentalist Martin Wave (Chloe Lilac). “Waste My Time” is about “that carefree moment when you're going out to the party, before you do the thing you'll regret the next day,” Langston jokingly explains.
“The session went remarkably smooth,” says collaborator Neil Ormandy. “Langston is confident in himself and his work and he knows what he wants. He’s able to state his perspective directly and clearly, but in a really cool tone, the kind that makes you want to keep listening.”
The upcoming sophomore EP follows Langston’s debut EP roaming and illustrates a coming of age for Langston. “It’s the sound of the endless summer after high school graduation, when everyone is still young but finally trying new things—it’s exciting and terrifying,” says Langston.
Langston’s debut EP roaming, which featured the singles “Fall From Grace,” “These Nights,” and “FCKD IT UP,” has accumulated nearly 10 million worldwide streams to date. The project also received praise from the likes of Vibe, Complex, and Blog TO, among others and he was invited to perform on the stage of some of Canada’s most coveted summer festivals including Osheaga, Festival d'été de Québec, and Ottawa Bluesfest. In 2018, Langaston was selected for Roots Sweatstyle campaign that ran in United States and Canada (previous alumni include Jessie Reyez, Daniel Caesar, Killy) and was named to Rogers Radio “One To Watch” and iHeart Radio’s “Future Stars” campaigns. He is currently in putting the final touches on his sophomore EP expected later this year.
