01 DECEMBER 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Today, Calum Scott releases “White Christmas – 1 Mic 1 Take (Live From Abbey Road Studios)”, ahead of his debut album Only Human, out March 9 via Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Available now to stream/download at all participating digital retailers, the track and accompanying live performance video follows up to the recently released lyric video for Scott’s first single, “You Are The Reason”, which garnered over one million views within a few days.
Written by Scott, Jon Maguire and Corey James Sanders, the emotionally resonant piano ballad is one of numerous songs produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Ellie Goulding) for the album. Scott also worked with producers Jayson DeZuzio, Oak Felder, Oscar Gorres and Phil Paul.
Fans who pre-order the album in digital format will instantly receive “You Are The Reason” and Scott’s two previous singles – his poignant version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own”, which charted at No. 1 on iTunes in 11 countries and “Rhythm Inside”, which has over 25 million streams worldwide – along with Tiësto’s remix of “Dancing On My Own”. In addition to 11 original tracks, the album also includes Scott’s haunting acoustic version of Bob Dylan’s “Not Dark Yet”. See below for full track listing.
“Dancing On My Own” quickly charted in over 34 countries on Spotify, peaking at No. 1 on the Viral chart in six, including the U.S. Now certified Platinum in four countries, it was the best-selling U.K. single of 2016 by a British solo artist and was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single. The song has over 550 million streams worldwide, while views of the video are approaching 225 million.
Scott wrapped up his first U.S. headlining tour earlier this year with sold-out shows across the country. While in the States, he performed “Dancing On My Own” on Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America and Dancing With The Stars.
