We say

Currently on the C list at BBC Radio 2 with this irresistible dance-rock anthem (his fifth Radio 2 playlist track), Callum Beattie released his long-awaited debut album People Like Us last Friday (15 May). As regular readers will know, we have been big fans of the Scottish singer-songwriter’s guitar-driven pop anthems over the years, and with fifteen tracks making up the album, including RotD’s We Are Stars, Ghosts In The Dark and now Play, it makes for a gorgeous listen. Entirely self-written and charting his tumultuous and joyous personal journey so far, the album provides a diverse soundscape all pinned together by his strikingly rich vocal. Inspired by Berlin’s legendary club culture and unrequited love, Play’s upbeat sound was produced by David Jürgens at Funk Haus studio in the German capital and features on editorial playlists at both Spotify and Apple Music. Further tastemaker support for Callum has come from Clash, Telegraph, Evening Standard, TMRW magazine and numerous of online blogs. If you haven’t yet taken the time out to listen to the album, we highly recommend you do and bask in its glorious storytelling and moving nature.
