30 November 2018 (Toronto, ON) — U.K. artist and songwriter Calum Scott releases a special edition of his breakout debut album Only Human today on Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Only Human (Special Edition) features four bonus tracks including Calum’s new single, “No Matter What,” his version of “White Christmas” (1 Mic 1 Take/Live From Abbey Road Studios,) and two additional songs. The full track list is below.
Directed by Ozzie Pullin, the powerful video for “No Matter What,” is out now. Says Calum, “‘No Matter What’ is an incredibly personal song but it is much more than a ‘coming out story,’ it’s about acceptance as a whole and that idea is something we really wanted capture in the video. I had the pleasure of working on this with Ozzie and his attention to detail and love of British cinema created a beautiful but painfully real video of the struggles and successes around being accepted . It was imperative that we got this right -I always hoped that this song and video would be used to inspire people, to give them something they could relate to, to sympathise with. The messages I have received since it’s release have proved that those hopes are being fulfilled and it brings the most gratifying and satisfying feelings you could ask for.”
