A clip of Theophilus London's new song "I Stand Alone" debuted this past weekend on HBO in the teaser clip for Season 2 of How To Make It In America. The clip can be seen on HBO.com as well as on YouTube. "I Stand Alone" is the first single off Theophilus' debut album Timez Are Weird These Days, Out July 19th on Warner Bros. Records (iTunes Pre-Order). How To Make It In America follows two enterprising twentysomethings as they hustle their way through New York City, determined to achieve their vision of the American Dream. Season 2 premieres on HBO in September.
Theophilus London's video for "Last Name London" is in regular rotation at MTV. In a recent feature in the New York Times, Theophilus discussed some of the influences behind Timez Are Weird These Days. The Village Voice gushed over his recent sold out Music Hall of Williamsburg - "he seemed like a star on a tiny stage, crazy for someone whose first album won't be out for another month." GQ recently caught up with Theophilus to get his 10 Essentials and Paper Magazine has a two page feature on TL in their new Summer Music issue.
Release week shows have been announced in LA & NY. Theophilus will be headlining The Troubadour in LA on July 18th and Bowery Ballroom in NYC on July 21st. On release day, July 19th, Theophilus London will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
