The time is finally here – on June 10th, we are getting a new George Ezra album, Gold Rush Kid. George Ezra is a longtime favorite of ours, and he’s got this incredible way with music where each of his songs feels like he straight up injected them with serotonin. We always listen to his discography at the loudest volume possible and let his angelic voice seep into our souls. It’s the best way to listen! His newest single, ‘Anyone For You,’ continues that streak beautifully.
As we got prepared for the release of Gold Rush Kid, we knew we had to break down our top five favorite George Ezra Tracks.

‘Pretty Shining People’
‘Pretty Shining People’ is the uplifting song we all need right now. The line “we’re alright together” just feels so unifying, especially when it’s sung in George Ezra’s heavenly voice. It’s impossible to be in a bad mood when this song is on – it’s pure sunshine in audio form.
‘Hold My Girl’
‘Hold My Girl’ is one of the softest songs we’ve ever heard. It is our goal in life to have someone love us so much that they would sing this song that is packed full of the sweetest lyrics of all time. The acoustic version is incredible as well, just strips it down to another level of vulnerability.
If you were on TikTok over the summer, there’s a 100% chance you’ve heard this absolute jam. ‘Shotgun’ is the perfect summer track to be the background music to any rendezvous with friends. We have a feeling this track is an out-of-body experience live.
‘Budapest’ is the first song we remember hearing from George Ezra. It put him on our map, and for that, we love it so much. The folk-like inspiration is so clear in this track while still being a pop song. And just to be clear, if anyone wrote a song about how they’d leave all the luxury in the world behind for us, we’d propose then and there.
Is ‘Paradise’ the happiest song of all time? It just might be! We can’t help but just have the biggest smile on our faces and scream the lyrics at the loudest volume whenever this track is on. It’s both a love song and an instant serotonin boost. We can hardly wait for what songs we’re going to get on Gold Rush Kid that put us in this exact mood all over again.
