On 22 August 2017, the single was added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist.[10] Later in 2017, Walker was named as one of the new additions to the BBC Radio 1 Brit List.[11] Walker has played support slots for artists such as George Ezra, Gallant and Jake Bugg.[12] On 28 September, Walker began his US tour, in Connecticut, supporting The Script.[10]

On 13 October 2017, Walker released his single "Leave a Light On" on Relentless Records. The single was co-written and produced by Steve Mac.[13] The music video for "Leave a Light On" was produced by Charles Mehling, and filmed in Croatia.[13][14] It impacted numerous international charts and was included in his debut studio album What a Time to Be Alive. In 2019, Walker won the Best Breakthrough Act at the 2019 Brit Awards.[15] His song "Leave the Light On" was also nominated for "Best British Single".
