South Africa’s latest breakout star, Will Linley has just released his debut EP kill all my feelings via BMG. To date, Will has earned over 17M+ global streams since his introduction in November 2021 and is quickly building his fanbase worldwide.

“The ‘kill all my feelings’ EP is a snapshot into my mind over the last 2 years and is an amalgamation of different sounds, feelings, and emotions,” explains Will. “When putting this EP together I tried my best to never fall into ‘one sound’ for all my songs. I’ve tried to cover a variety of different genres throughout this project. Although each song has its own unique world, they somehow all fit together as a cohesive body of work, and that is why I love it so much. This EP is a part of my heart that I’m giving to the world and I’m so excited for everyone to hear it.”

Alongside the release, Will Linley has shared the feel-good music video for the title track directed by Iris Kim (SixTwentySix Production).

“kill all my feelings’ is such a special song to me,” shares Will. “The way it came to be was so natural and easy, it kind of fell into our laps! I wrote it with my friend John Samual over zoom about a year ago and to this day it’s one of my favourite songs to perform live.”

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. The pop sensation soon found a global connection with fans thanks to TikTok and his raw, relatable and now radio hit lyrics.

Will’s 2021 debut single “miss me (when you’re gone)” has garnered 15M+ global streams, over a million YouTube views, 5M+ TikTok views, and has been used over 5K times on the platform since its release in November. The hit track topped the charts reaching #1 on 6 stations across South Africa. His highly-anticipated follow-up singles “wrong time” and “i don’t wanna be yours” are currently in the Top 20 on the South African radio charts.

“I love to tell a story with my music,” Will explains.“Sometimes it’s reflective of my own personal life experience, and other times it’s a story–but always, it’s something I can relate to. I find that writing music helps me process my own life, and emotions, and I realize as I share my songs with my friends that the stories can speak to other people too.”
