John Newman will release Tiring Game as the second official single from his upcoming album Revolve.
The roaring, gospel powered follow up to the record’s lead cut Come and Get It – a UK top 5 hit earlier this year – will be sent to iTunes on 9 October, a week ahead of the album’s official launch date.
Tiring Game also features Grammy-nominated soul singer and Gap Band founder and frontman Charlie Wilson, of whom the 25 year old Yorkshireman is clearly a big fan. “Being around this amazing human you would never be able to guess the struggles he has had to overcome,” says Newman. “He is such a humble and dedicated genius. It was honestly a mind-blowing pleasure working with such a legend.”
Revolve was recorded in London, Miami and LA, and features vocals from Idris Elba on the record’s opening track, as well as production from Greg Kurstin and brass work from Michael Jackson’s regular collaborator, Jerry Hey.
