29th April 2022, London, UK: Today marks the premiere of “Heaven,” the sublime new single and video from multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Calum Scott — listen HERE, and check out the video HERE. Along with sharing the triumphant and timeless ballad, Calum has announced that his highly awaited sophomore album Bridges will arrive on 17 June.
The fourth single released from Bridges, “Heaven” once again reveals Calum’s gift for finding unexpected ways to express universal emotions. “As songwriters, we’re always searching for new ways of saying ‘I miss you’ or ‘I love you’ or ‘I want you back,’” says Calum, who co-wrote “Heaven” with Hayley Warner(an Australian singer-songwriter who’s also penned songs for artists like Katy Perry and Tori Kelly). “‘The concept of ‘Heaven’ is the love between two people being so powerful that it is far superior to anything else, any other form of paradise that could be offered. I loved the idea of putting the power into the relationship.”
Produced by Fraser T. Smith, “Heaven” unfolds in a dynamic arrangement of soulful piano work, luminous strings, and elegantly swinging drumbeats — a glorious backdrop to Calum’s masterful vocal performance. “It felt important to really push my vocal range on a song like this, so by the first chorus I’m already up in the rafters,” he says. “But if you’re talking about something so passionate, it should be delivered in a very passionate way.” Threaded with lyrics that offer a certain poetic wisdom (e.g., “What good is life if we’re all just waiting to dance in the sky?”), the result is a breathtaking tribute to living in the moment by fully surrendering to love.
The follow-up to Calum’s 2018 full-length debut Only Human — a widely acclaimed effort that hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries across the globe, in addition to selling more than 3.6 million in adjusted album sales and garnering over 7.5 billion combined streams — Bridges will also feature the previously released singles “If You Ever Change Your Mind” (a bittersweet but empowered piece produced by Greg Kurstin, an eight-time GRAMMY Award® winner known for his work with Paul McCartney, Elton John, and Adele), “Rise” (a wildly soaring track whose video features a captivating performance from British actor Georgia Hirst), and “Biblical” (a heart-on-sleeve ballad Calum later followed with an American Sign Language version made in collaboration with the Tony Award®-winning Deaf West Theatre). Fans can pre-order the album now, <>
Fresh off his recent run as support for The Script, Calum will embark on his own headline tour later this year with 25 dates scheduled for North America and dates across UK, Europe, and Australia. See below for UK dates and find ticketing info at <<https://www.calumscott.com>>.
