Marlon Williams and Aldous Harding, two of New Zealand's most talented singers and songwriters were a couple. Having parted ways romantically, the two have now reunited on a song for William's brand new album, Make Way For Love, out February 2018.
Known for his effortlessly distinctive voice, Williams demonstrates exponential growth as a songwriter on the upcoming album, as evidenced in the album's first single, "Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore". In the wake of a fractured relationship, Williams reveals himself in an unprecedented way and explores new musical terrain with his timeless, and arresting voice.
"Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore," was recorded by Harding and Williams remotely—while he was in LA and she was in Cardiff. In a statement to NPR about the new track, Williams says, "I had wanted to do it at the same time and place but it wasn't to be. Which, of course, approaches what the song is about. I wrote it as an apology, in the classical sense – a defense for the bond between us, against the storybook feelings of resentment and doubt that come with the termination of any relationship."
