Calum Scott, Only Human, Album Review

29-year-old, Calum Scott, from Hull auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 and came 6th with help from the hard-to-please, Simon Cowell. Since then, Scott has reached No 2 in the UK Charts with his passionate version of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own, and has had over 50 million streams on his latest single, You Are The Reason. Catching the attention of Leona Lewis, former X Factor winner, Scott is climbing to reach the top in the music industry in the months ahead.

On the 9th March, Calum Scott will be releasing his debut album, Only Human, which I have been granted access before the release date. Dancing On My Own, Rhythm Inside and You Are The Reason are the three singles that will be featured on the album and they have gathered quite a bit of attention. Leona Lewis had You Are the Reason “on repeat” and found it such a “beautiful ballad” that she decided to duet with Calum on the single. Although they are not available on the album itself, they can be streamed on other means such as Spotify. I love how harmonious the pair sound on the tracks, their voices blend together so well and really add another level of meaning into the singles.

The Brit nominee had set the bar high for his album and he has exceeded my expectations. Calum speaks about how he had the “intention of connecting with people all around the world” through his music which is packed with romantic affection. Each song is lyrically beautiful, every word has sentiment and it is evident is some tracks like If Our Love Is Wrong, which is the first track on the album.

There are some brilliant piano ballads on the album which are supported by Calum Scott’s loving tone of voice. Scott’s voice is the protagonist on of this album, it really shines is certain tracks like Human, Hotel Room. There’s a nice blend of slower and higher tempo songs which showcase Calum’s unique voice. I honestly believe that his voice, alone, is what makes this album so spectacular.

Scott finished up his American tour late last year, and made guest appearances on the likes of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Good Morning America. He will be touring in the UK in the upcoming months. I’m hoping to catch him live to experience his phenomenal music live!

Until next time...
