Boy (stylized as boy) is an EP by Luke Hemmings, released through Arista Records on April 26, 2024.


I wrote these songs at a moment in my life when I found myself questioning everything I thought I knew about the world & myself. All the emotions, fears and grief that came with it.

– Luke Hemmings, Instagram[1]

These songs are a snapshot of my inner workings and the way I see the world. They’re not intended to be consumed as autobiographical facts to dissect, but as an overly dramatic, cathartic, poetic stream of my consciousness. As if you’ve opened my diary and can only read a line from each page. I hope you love them and can find yourself within the music and lyrics. I’m so grateful to be able to share this with the world. Thank you.

– Luke Hemmings, "boy is yours april 26th."[2]
