Years and Years becomes Olly Alexander solo project

Years & Years is now an Olly Alexander solo project after Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Turkmen quit the band.

The trio – which originally formed as a five-piece in 2010 – stunned fans on Thursday (18.03.210) as it was revealed the 30-year-old musician will release their new music on his own.

In a statement, the group – whose debut album ‘Communion’ was released in 2015 – said: “Dear Y&Y fans… There’s been some changes that we want to fill you in on.

“This upcoming new album has been an Olly endeavour and we’ve decided that Years & Years will continue as an Olly solo project.

“The three of us are still good friends. Mikey will be part of the Y&Y family and play with us live and Emre will focus on being a writer/producer.

“These past 12 months have been crazy for us all and we want to thank you for the love and support you’ve given us over the years (& years).

“New Y&Y music will be coming this spring.”

Originally, the band – whose second record ‘Palo Santo’ dropped three years ago – also featured Noel Leeman and Olivier Subria, who both left in 2013.

Now, the group’s Twitter account reflects the changes as the bio reads: “hi i’m @alexander_olly and this is my music. (sic)”

Meanwhile, Olly – who has won critical acclaim for his role in TV drama series ‘It’s A Sin’ – has recently revealed he wants to keep singing “until [he] dies”.

Asked if his first love is singing or acting, he told OK! magazine: “Singing is something I will do until I die because I love to sing.

“I love the fact I can do it in the morning, I can do it in the evening and I can do it all afternoon.”

But he is also keen to keep on acting after such an “amazing” experience making the Channel 4 drama about the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.

He said: “[My ultimate goal is] to continue performing.

“’It’s A Sin’ was such a profound experience that has made me think, ‘Wow I would really love another go at something like this.’

“It’s been amazing and I really want to do it again, but I’m going to take it as it comes.”

‘The second-dose debt’: Why millions of people will now be made to wait for their COVID jab

The COVID-19 vaccination programme has exceeded expectations by delivering more than 25 million first doses in just 100 days, but it is about to become the victim of its own success.The reason is what we might call the "second-dose debt" - the requirement that everyone who receives a first dose should get a second within 12 weeks. At its simplest, it means that if 400,000 first doses are delivered on a given day, the programme then needs to deliver 400,000 […]
