Kiwi country crooner Marlon Williams has just released his new single and video “What’s Chasing You”. The track is the second single from Williams’ highly anticipated new album Make Way For Love which is due on the 16th February.

“It’s an earnest question,” Marlon Williams said about the track. “It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to know of another human being. Like all good questions, it’s childishly simple. We all want to live inside the fears of the ones we love, if not to dispel them then at the very least to understand, empathize and let’s be honest, compare hands. I’m not convinced truly understanding another’s woes would really bring anyone happiness, but I am a nosey boy. What’s chasing you?”
