Will Linley has released his third single, “i don’t wanna be yours” today. The new song follows “miss me (when you’re gone)” and latest track, “wrong time”, which have both found the young artist quickly building his fanbase around the world.
“‘i don’t wanna be yours’ is about not wanting to get into a relationship with someone because you know it just isn’t going to work out and ultimately wanting to save each other from any hurt that may come in the future,” says Will of his latest bop that reflects his knack for storytelling and songwriting. “It was the first song I ever wrote with my producers David and Bubele. The guitars and groove of the song are quite different from my other tracks but I love the contrast between lyrics and overall feel of the music”, he adds.
Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, 20-year-old South African songwriter and musician, Will Linley cannot remember a time in his life without music. He grew up singing as a hobby but never imagined that his passion could translate into a career. Once the pandemic hit, Will found himself stuck at home writing music as a way to feel less isolated. He soon found a global connection with fans thanks to TikTok and his raw, relatable and now radio hit lyrics.
Will is gearing up to play a handful of live shows in his home country of South Africa.
