Fans of Rudimental have already borne witness to the power of John Newman live when he wowed audiences across the country as both special guest, and featured singer, on the band's recent sell-out UK tour. Newman also wrote and was featured vocalist on Rudimental's follow up hit 'Not Giving In'.
A rousing and uplifting anthem, 'Love Me Again', was written and produced by the young Yorkshire born artist and is shaping up to be one of the biggest records of the year.
Hailing from Settle in the Yorkshire Dales, and possessing a voice that has been compared to some of the soul greats, John has already appeared on Later With Jools and the Christmas Top Of The Pops special and looks set to establish himself as one of the UK's major new talents.
John's first headline UK show at The Lexington in London on July 11th sold out in minutes.
