Finding new artists to listen to can be a fun journey, depending on when you find them. Whether you like to discover people before they make it big, or discover them once they’ve “made it,” it’s a magical moment. This past week Britain’s got Talent Alum, Calum Scott released his debut album Only Human. If you want to check him out before reading the rest of the article then listen to his cover of Robyn’s dancing on my own below.
Please tell me you enjoyed that as much as I did the first time I heard it, about a year ago. Calum’s vocals ranges from low to high and he showcases each note on his CD, or if you’re like me, Get the vinyl and crank that bad boy up!
The kick off of the album is a song titled, If Our Love is Wrong. Being open about his sexuality this song is basically saying: whether these people like us or not, I’d rather be wrong and love you rather than, right and not love you. It’s a sweet ballad that captures your heart right from the start.
Another one of my favorites on this album is the song Hotel Room. This song according to Calum, is about falling in love with someone of the same sex who can never return the love you’ve given them. I think this one resonates with me the most, because I know the feeling. It’s gut wrenching, but it’s worth it, to come out stronger even though at the time you feel like you may die.
The last song I’d like to talk about is: You are the Reason. Swoon. This was his first single of the album, recently released with Leona Lewis as a Duet. You know what, Instead of me talking about how it makes me feel and what it means to me, I want you to listen to it below and let me know what you think.
Calum’s Album can be streamed through Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. His Deluxe album consists of 14 songs and lasts 50 minutes. I recommend listening to Calum’s entire story as it is a poetic masterpiece that leaves you wanting more.
