A new documentary following British singer-songwriter George Ezra has been confirmed for release in UK cinemas on 29 August.
That documentary follows the release of the 29-year-old’s third studio album, Gold Rush Kid.
The film, titled End to End, follows the journey of Ezra in 2021, covering a distance of 1,200 miles in 95 days from Lands End in southern England to John O’Groats, the northernmost tip of the UK mainland.
Meeting musicians along the way, he explores and reunites country after months of separation, reflecting on his relationship to his music and live performances.
The documentary’s London launch event will include an intimate live performance by Ezra that will be broadcast in cinemas across the country.
Speaking about the documentary, Ezra said: “I started running right after I finished the album, and we committed ourselves to this adventure for three months.
“While I was on tour, I started getting mixes of new songs I was working on, so the tour was soundtracked by the new album and each made the other more meaningful.
“It wasn’t lost on me that this was a real life changing moment, it really changed my perception of the world.
“I am very happy that the audience will be able to see it on the big screen and we can celebrate the experience.”
