John Newman Announces 'Tribute' U.K. Album Release Date
Rising U.K. star John Newman has announced that his debut solo album, "Tribute," will be released overseas on Oct. 14.
The Yorkshire-born 23-year-old has already topped the U.K. singles chart, first as a featured performer on Rudimental's "Feel The Love" and then with his vibrant solo single "Love Me Again," which debuted in the top spot in July. "Love Me Again" has sold 22,000 downloads to date in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan, and while follow-up single, "Cheating," has yet to hit the States, its official music vidoe has garnered 1.6 million VEVO views since launching on Aug. 22.
"This album… it's going to be quite hard for me to listen to," Newman told Billboard in July. "In the time that I was going through watching things change and the music picking up, I was trapped in this house that me and my girlfriend had built this whole relationship in. And I had to move out of that house, because it was like every wall reminded me of this break-up. A lot of the songs come from that -- how I couldn't look at certain things in that house, and how I had to get out."
Newman has yet to announce his U.S. live debut or the American release date for "Tribute," but says that stateside performances are "of course" coming. In the meantime, get familiar with the "Cheating" video below.
