The record, which has already reached #1 in the UK and Irish iTunes Charts, has had Dermot working diligently over the past two years in between a huge global touring schedule. The record proves his talent for earnest storytelling and effortless song-writing, whilst working alongside the likes of Koz (Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa, Meek Mill), Starsmith, Carey Willetts and Sir Nolan (Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne) to produce the record as well as Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Chance The Rapper, Julia Michaels) who was exec producer on the project.
Single "Outnumbered" currently at number 14 in the UK Charts and climbing, sat on the BBC Radio 1 playlist for an astounding 10 weeks, one of the longest periods of any single in 2019 to date and has topped over 60 million streams alone. Dermot will perform ‘Outnumbered’ on The Jonathan Ross Show tomorrow night his first evening prime-time performance in the UK, which follows US appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Ellen Show where he wowed crowds with performances of previous single ‘Power Over Me’. ‘Power Over Me’ reached #1 in the airplay charts in France, Germany and Belgium and reached Triple Platinum in Ireland, Platinum in the Netherlands and Switzerland and Gold in Canada. In total Dermot is rapidly approaching a billion streams worldwide.
The highly-anticipated record arrives ahead of the singer’s biggest run of tour dates yet, including two sold out dates at London’s Eventim Apollo on December 2nd and 3rd and finishing with his biggest ever headline shows at Dublin’s 3Arena on December 22nd and 23rd; culminating with a total 120,000 tickets sold across his European dates this autumn alone. The tour follows a career highlight marathon of sold-out shows around North America, the UK and Europe, including a staggering performance at London’s Brixton Academy, four nights at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, as well as show stopping sets at Glastonbury and Coachella. He rounded the summer off by appearing second from headline at Ireland’s leading festival Electric Picnic, where 50,000 people showed up to see his mind blowing set and firmly established him as a future headliner to watch
