James Arthur Announces New Single 'Recovery' Out December 15th 2013

A heady mix of gritty beats and uplifting vocal samples, 'Recovery' was co-written with 'Impossible' songwriter Ina Worlsdenand charts James' deeply personal journey from winning the TV show to the making of his album. Building from it's intimate stripped-back intro to a climatic conclusion of widescreen proportions, the track takes the listener on a lyrically inspiring and melodic trip further solidifying James as one of the most exciting new musical talents around.

With a hectic end-of-year schedule in place including a much-anticipated X Factor performance and an exclusive show for the Crisis homeless charity, James will then embark on an extensive 2014 UK & European tour which kicks off in Ipswich on January 5th - see full tour dates below.

After winning X Factor 2012, James went on to score the biggest selling X Factor single of all time with the BRIT Award nominated 'Impossible'.
