One of UK’s brightest stars Calum Scott releases new hot-sounding single and music video “If You Ever Change Your Mind”, set to go on tour with The Script this spring
A bittersweet but uplifting reflection on a painful relationship, “If You Ever Change Your Mind” is the third song that Calum has shared from his highly anticipated sophomore album, due out this spring.
Calum shares, “Five years ago, I fell in love so hard that ever since we parted ways, there has been an invisible tether between us, sometimes existing silently, other times pulling on me like a rope attached to my chest. I got together with Mozella and Hayley Warner in LA to write this one and had the pleasure of working with the legend, Greg Kurstin on track and vocals. I really enjoyed stepping into a new sound with Greg on this song – I feel we struck the balance of lyrics that tell the story of heartbreak and conflict but maintain a hopeful and reminiscent sound that makes this song feel so good!
As the track unfolds and its commanding rhythms kick in, Calum looks back on a broken romance with both regret and renewed perspective (from the pre-chorus: “I pulled away ’cause the pain’s too strong/And you were saying that we don’t belong”). Co-written by Calum, “If You Ever Change Your Mind” ultimately builds an irresistible tension between his never-ending affection and newly heightened sense of self-worth.
Earlier in 2021, Calum Scott teamed up with Jasmine Thompson on their collaboration “love is just a word”.
Calum delivered an impassioned performance of “If You Ever Change Your Mind” on “Live with Kelly and Ryan and Calum recently appeared as a featured artist on Lost Frequencies’ “Where Are You Now”— a July release that’s now amassed over 250 million streams worldwide.
Kicking off on March 30 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, the 12-date North American run will continue through April 14 at the legendary Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Prior to releasing to “Rise,” Calum offered up the soulful minimalism of “Biblical”: a heart-on-sleeve ballad he later followed with an American Sign Language (ASL) version made in collaboration with the Tony Award®-winning Deaf West Theatre. Along with “If You Ever Change Your Mind,” both “Rise” and “Biblical” will appear on 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.
