|The MTV VMA nominee JC Stewart adds to his rising star status and 250 million+ streams by sharing his brand new single ‘Scars’. It follows two big tracks already this year for the pop singer-songwriter: his single ‘Love Like That’, which saw him grace the cover of Spotify’s New Pop UK playlist and pick up Radio 1 Best New Pop airplay, and a feature on the Armin van Buuren / Billen Ted dance hit ‘Come Around Again’. JC joined the two artists to give the song an unforgettable debut at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and it exceeded a million streams in just five days. ‘Scars’ is released as JC’s long-awaited European headline tour, The Tour After The Tour That Didn’t Tour, is now underway. It includes his biggest shows to date in both London and Belfast.|
JC’s instantly relatable, emotionally charged songwriting is given a subtle shift with ‘Scars’. While he usually pours his heart into stories of heartache and break-ups, ‘Scars’ instead celebrates how those challenges have shaped the person he is today.JC’s tenacious, touching vocal powers an affecting summer pop smash which provides a beacon of hope for fans who are struggling with their own battles. As the hook so euphorically expresses, what currently feels insurmountable will one day be just a memory: “I wear my scars and the stories that they’re painting / They hurt like hell, but damn it feels amazing.” Listen HERE.
JC says, “‘Scars’ is a song about coming back to life. I wrote it after coming out of a weird time and realising that maybe I was meant to go through it. Maybe all the challenges and hardships are there to make us better and stronger and better equipped to love the people around us. I love the euphoria that this song gives me, and it really lifts me when I’m starting to get down again. I hope it can do the same for other people!”
JC wrote ‘Scars’ with its producer Anton Hard and co-writer Linnea Södahl.
‘Scars’ is released alongside a full live band performance video, which provides a tantalising teaser of what to expect from JC’s current tour. Watch HERE.
