Nathan Sykes today premieres his powerful new single ‘Famous’. Listen here.
‘Famous’ is the fourth single to be taken from Nathan’s hotly anticipated debut solo album ‘Unfinished Business’ due for release via Global Entertainment on Friday November 4th.
Written by Nathan and Executive Producer Harmony Samuels alongside Major Johnson Finley and Carmen Reece, ‘Famous’ is an intensely soulful ballad showcasing Nathan’s distinctively rich vocals.
“Famous is a song that was inspired by someone that I was very close to when I was in the band and when the band decided to take a break they suddenly stopped talking to me. It prompted me to ask the very simple question what do I have to do to make you care about me as much as I care about you? Do I have to be Famous?”
Known for being part of multi-platinum-selling band The Wanted, Nathan launched his solo career in 2015. He has already topped the US Billboard Dance Club Chart twice, with his debut single ‘Kiss Me Quick’ and ‘Over And Over Again’, embarked on a sell-out headline UK tour and become a Celebrity Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust. He performed his first US live solo performance on Good Morning America and headlined his own show at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City – which sold out in just 10 minutes. His single ‘Over And Over Again’ shot straight into the UK iTunes Top 5 after just one phenomenal X Factor performance. This summer he joined Take That and Olly Murs on stage at London’s Hyde Park for British Summertime Live.
In the USA this year People Magazine named Nathan ‘The Voice’ in their ‘Ones To Watch’ feature and in July he headlined their ‘People Now’ concert series in New York. Nathan has also wowed with appearances on Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve, The Late Late Show with James Corden plus America’s biggest morning show, Kelly and Michael. He’s currently touring with Canadian superstar Alessia Cara on her ‘Know-It-All Tour’, performing at prestigious venues including Radio City Music Hall in New York.
