Calum Scott teases ‘completely different’ new music ahead of Emeli Sandé tour
The Britain’s Got Talent star’s debut single Dancing On My Own peaked at number two in the UK charts, while his future on Matrix & Futurebound’s Light Us Up dominated dance floors around Europe.
While an album is in the works, Calum is set to concentrate on singles, no doubt partially due to the market becoming harder and harder to break into thanks to the rise of streaming.
“The music I have coming up is a little bit more upbeat than the stuff I have done before,” Calum Scott explained to Daily Star Online.
“I did a track with Matrix & Futurebound which was more drum and base but I have been working on stuff that is a little bit more…
“Well, I’ve already announced I’ve worked with Jonas Blue so it is a little bit more down that vein.
“I wanted to do something completely different and just enjoy exploring my voice and what I can do an exploring another audience who might not known Calum Scott.”
Over the summer, Calum has played a host of festivals around the world as his popularity goes from strength to strength.
However, one downside to playing gigs that aren’t exclusively your own is that you have to work harder to draw in a crowd.

“I don’t get too offended if people are walking away from my set or if people are on their phone,” Calum continued.
“Sometimes you see people glued to you or sometimes you see people just leaving but I just try and connect all the time with whoever it is with.
“At a festival I am very grateful that someone has taken their time to come and see me, you can never see everyone at a festival.”
Later this year Calum will swamp the mud-filled campsites for the bright lights of arenas up and down the country.
“I am touring with Emeli Sandé in October which is going to blow my mind,” the northern lad explained.
“I have been working with other artists as well so hopefully I will have some new music out around then as well.”
