SPECIAL EDITION OF DEBUT ALBUM ONLY HUMAN OUT NOVEMBER 30
08 November 2018 (Toronto, ON) — U.K. artist and songwriter Calum Scott releases a video for his latest single, “No Matter What,” today. Watch it HERE. The video was directed by Ozzie Pullin, who also directed Calum’s video for “What I Miss Most.”
The powerfully emotional video for “No Matter What,” details Calum’s journey of acceptance both of himself and of his family. It’s the perfect accompaniment to “No Matter What,” which Calum calls “without question, the most personal song I have ever written and the one I am most proud of. It's a song born from loneliness and the heartbreaking but liberating tale of my coming-out experience. What I love about this song is that it isn’t just limited to a story of sexual identity, but about the relationship between parent and child and acceptance as a whole.”
Calum will release a Special Edition of his breakout debut album Only Human on November 30 via Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Upon its release, Only Human, hit #1 on iTunes in over 20 countries, sold more than 1.5 million in adjusted album sales, and is fast approaching 2 billion combined streams.
