Track of the Day: John Newman returns with huge new single, Feelings.

John Newman, owner of one of the most distinctive voices, writer and performer of some of the biggest anthems including 3 number 1 singles - Feel The Love, Love Me Again & Blame, and one of the major breakthrough artists in the UK in recent years, marks his very welcome return with the release of his brand-new single “FEELINGS”.

Released on Island Records, John wrote the track with the BLNK collective in Sweden, best known for writing Chainsmokers’ “Paris” and “Sexual” for NEIKED. The track was co-produced by John alongside fast rising Swedish producer Jarly who co-produced Lullaby and Came Here For Love for long time John collaborator, Sigala. 

John has just hit a staggering 2 billion global streams (combining audio and video) for his own releases and is well past the 4.5 billion!! mark when you factor in his hugely successful collaborations. 

Following the release of 2015’s acclaimed “Revolve” album, which was the follow-up to his platinum selling no. 1 debut album “Tribute”, John took a well-earned break to take stock, recover from a health issue and re-examine what it was he wanted to say and how he would say it. “Revolve” was largely recorded in Los Angeles where Newman had been spending a lot of time, including a headlining performance at Coachella alongside friend and collaborator Calvin Harris (& Rihanna) where they performed their number 1 hit “Blame”. 

It quickly became clear that his heart and soul belonged in the UK and John relocated to the Kent countryside where he has been busy in the studio writing and recording new music. 

It was the global no. 1 smash ”Love Me Again” and subsequent debut album, “Tribute” which also spawned the huge hit single “Come & Get It”, that established the Yorkshire-man as one of the UK’s most singular talents and consistently successful artists. Global monster “Blame”, which sold over 4 million worldwide, gave John his third UK no. 1 single following Rudimental’s “Feel The Love” and his own chart-topping debut ”Love Me Again”. Newman has sold over 6 million singles world-wide to date.

John has also found time to record and feature alongside Sigala and the legendary Nile Rodgers on the massive hit “Give Me Your Love” and remains very much in demand as a songwriter having penned singles for Paloma Faith, Kungs, & Jacob Banks to name but a few.
