James Arthur returns fresh from the huge global success of his song ‘Train Wreck’ with his brand new single ‘Medicine’.
Back with a new record deal in the UK (Columbia Records, a co-deal with Columbia Records Germany), ‘Medicine’ is boldly autobiographical. The track was the very first song James wrote during his first writing session for the new album.
James says: “Medicine’ is an uplifting ode to self, to relationships, to community and connection, and to the healing, restorative powers of love over adversity. It is, you might say, the perfect song for spring 2021.”
Listen to ‘Medicine’ by James Arthur on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
James continues, “The last year has forced any couple to look at themselves. It held a mirror up to us all, didn’t it? And my partner was hugely supportive through that whole time. There are some pretty dark lyrics in there: ‘When I’m suicidal, you don’t let me spiral…’”
James has sold over 30 million records worldwide and has released three hugely successful albums James Arthur (#2), Back From The Edge (#1) and YOU (#2), alongside nine solo UK Top 40 singles.
He has had two No.1 smash hits and was awarded a disc for reaching a billion streams on Spotify with ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’, the #1 global hit that brought the singer-songwriter from Middlesbrough back from the edge.
James recently hit the Official UK Chart with ‘Train Wreck’, a track written and recorded for his second album that found a new lease of life via Tik Tok. The track has had an incredible 365 million streams to date.
