Calum Scott is now just a few days away from the release of his debut album Only Human, and is ramping up promotions for the record, today debuting the official music video for his stunning duet with Leona Lewis. Shot at Angel Studios in London, Calum and Leona tackle their collaborative version of You Are The Reason with gorgeous results. You can check out the video below:
The friendship and chemistry between the pair is obvious on the screen, and Calum admits that he’s been hoping to work with Leona for some time.
Chatting about the collaboration, he says: “Working with Leona was a dream come true. As a fan, I first remember watching her on TV before going on to grace the globe with her incredibly beautiful voice. Now having the honour of working with her on one of my own songs is completely surreal and the passion and raw emotion she brings to our duet makes it even more special to me. I can still hardly believe that we did it!”
Leona adds: “I remember the day Calum sent me this track, I sat listening at home and had it on repeat. It’s one of those powerful songs that touches your heart and such a beautiful ballad, everyone knows I love singing them! Calum’s performance on it is stunning and I loved being able to join him to make this duet version.”
Written by Scott alongside Jon Maguire and Corey James Sanders, You Are The Reason is just one of the many songs producer by Fraser T Smith on Calum’s upcoming album. He also worked with producers including Jayson DeZuzio, Oak Felder, Oscar Gorres and Phil Paul to come up with the looming collection.
Following the record’s release, Calum will set out on a tour across the UK and Ireland throughout April, visiting cities including Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester and of course, his hometown of Hull.
Calum Scott’s debut album Only Human is released on Friday, March 9, 2018. Singles You Are The Reason and Dancing On My Own are available now for streaming and download.
