John Newman marks his very welcome return with the release of his brand new single ‘Fire In Me’ – and you can listen to it now on the Fantasy Premier League playlist.
Released on Island Records, ‘Fire In Me’ – produced by Mark Ralph (Clean Bandit, Jax Jones, Alma) – finds Yorkshire’s finest doing what he does best, belting out a bona fide banger that is guaranteed to light up dancefloors and airwaves for months to come.
Following the release of 2015’s acclaimed ‘Revolve‘ album, which was the follow-up to his platinum selling no. 1 debut album ‘Tribute‘, John, who has three UK number 1 singles, 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.
After spending time recording in Los Angeles, where Newman also headlined a 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 which saw him relocate to the Kent countryside.
John’s previous successes include the global no. 1 smash ‘Love Me Again‘, the huge hit single ‘Come & Get It‘, the previously mentioned global monster ‘Blame’ which sold over 4 million worldwide, his part in Rudimental’s ‘Feel The Love‘ and his own chart-topping debut ‘Love Me Again‘.
Overall Newman has sold over 6 million singles worldwide to date, while Vevo/Youtube video plays stand at a rudely healthy 380 million, and social stats are equally impressive with almost 1.9 million Facebook fans, 400k Twitter followers and 220k Instagram followers.
