Following the release of “Heaven,” multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Calum Scott yesterday announced his biggest headline Asia tour to date, the Bridges Asia Tour.
The concert tour includes his debut shows in Tokyo on October 18 before performing in Manila on October 20, then in Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore.
“It feels so incredible to announce my Asia tour. It’s been a long time coming and a lot of planning but after the last few years we’ve had, you can just tell how excited people are for live music again and I’m so happy to be a part of it. I am coming back with my band to play the songs that people discovered me on, as well as new songs from my second album which I would say is my best and most personal work yet,” the English singer and songwriter says in a statement sent to the media.
Calum has announced that his highly awaited sophomore album Bridges will arrive on June 17. The fourth single released from it, “Heaven” once again reveals Calum’s gift for finding unexpected ways to express universal emotions.
“As songwriters, we’re always searching for new ways of saying ‘I miss you’ or ‘I love you’ or ‘I want you back,’” says Calum, who co-wrote “Heaven” with Hayley Warner. “The concept of ‘Heaven’ is the love between two people being so powerful that it is far superior to anything else, any other form of paradise that could be offered. I loved the idea of putting the power into the relationship.”
The follow-up to Calum’s 2018 full-length debut Only Human—a widely acclaimed effort that hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries across the globe, in addition to selling more than 3.6 million in adjusted album sales and garnering over 7.5 billion combined streams —Bridges will also feature the previously released singles “If You Ever Change Your Mind,” “Rise,” and “Biblical.”
