In honor of National Coming Out Day (10/10/2018), breakout
U.K. artist, singer, and songwriter, Calum Scott premiered
“A Coming Out Story” on Vevo.
The poignant profile is an incredibly personal look at how Calum
found the courage to be honest about himself through music and
discusses his emotional journey from childhood into adulthood
to find his authentic self.
"I know that there are people young and old struggling with
the same questions, and living with that relentless fear and
heartbreak,” says Calum. “I make the music I do because I want
to inspire the right kind of conversations. If one less kid
can grow up without hiding who they are along the way or having
to believe that who they love is something that will make them
lonely, then everything I went through will be worth it."
Calum showcases his soaring falsetto on his debut album Only
Human out now on Capitol Records. Only Human
hit #1 on iTunes in over 20 countries, sold over 1 million in
adjusted album sales, and has amassed over 1 billion combined
streams. Billboard said, “Scott’s stunningly pure voice
is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of
the (album’s) tracks are vulnerable and raw.” His hit single,
“You Are The Reason” featuring three- time Grammy nominee
and vocal powerhouse Leona Lewis, is already certified
Gold and has over 750 million streams worldwide. Calum’s new
track, “What I Miss Most” out now, unfolds as a triumphant homage
to his hometown of Kingston upon Hull, located in Northern England.
He will release his new single, “No Matter What” on October
Calum was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single, for his
version of Robyn's “Dancing On My Own,” which became
a global sensation with over 1 billion streams worldwide, and
is now Platinum in five countries.
