Edinburgh singer-songwriter Callum Beattie unveils his new single ‘Miracle’ through 3 Beat and Universal Music – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
‘Miracle’ – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League playlist – is a cinematic and empowering offering, showcasing the effortless way in which Callum mixes his emotive cracked vocals with an infectious, euphoric sound and relatable lyrics, intertwined with rich textures and chiming keys.
Taken from Callum’s upcoming sophomore EP of the same name, set for release on January 19, the six-track foot EP oozes confidence and a maturity beyond his years from the beginning. Featuring addictive melodies throughout, the EP bursts into life with hook laden choruses, spine-tingling melodies and future-anthems-in-waiting.
Beattie is currently working hard in the studio, honing his craft, with producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paolo Nutini), Chris Potter (The Verve, Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney) and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar), the album is set to feature writing contributions from former Nick Hodgson (Kaiser Chiefs) and guitar from former Verve man Nick McCabe.
Having risen stealthily through the ranks over the last year, Beattie, who takes inspiration from the likes of CHVRCHES, Biffy Clyro, Sia and Kings Of Leon, has already supported the likes of James Arthur, Clean Cut Kid, Fickle Friends and James TW, building a committed cult fanbase. The culmination of a year’s work is now starting to pay serious dividends, with over four million streams for his debut EP ‘We Are Stars’.
This year saw him added to the A List at BBC Radio 2, hit the number one spot on the itunes Singer-Songwriter Chart, feature (twice) on electronic heavyweight High Contrast’s album ‘Night Gallery’ and perform at a plethora of UK festivals including Glastonbury, V, British Summer Time, Boardmasters and The Great Escape.
