Listen now: George Ezra returns with new track, "Don't Matter Now"

Courtesy Columbia RecordsGeorge Ezra hasn't released a new song in three years, but that "Don't Matter Now." That's the name of the deep-voiced English musician's new track, which is streaming along with a beach-y music video now on YouTube.

"Don't Matter Now" is the first new track from Ezra following his 2014 debut album, Wanted on Voyage, which boasted the hit single "Budapest."

"I wrote 'Don't Matter Now' to remind myself, primarily, that it's okay to want to take yourself away from situations from time to time," says Ezra in a statement. "It was one of the first new songs I wrote after Wanted On Voyage, all the way back in sunny 2015."

"Events from back then can seem quite trivial at this point, but the song has made more sense to me as time has gone on," he continues. "In time I realized that it wasn't just me that was suffering from anxiety, it wasn't just me that was confused, and that there's no harm in not always understanding what’s going on in the world around you."

Ezra is currently on tour through Europe, and he'll travel to the U.S. in August to play Lollapalooza.
