John Newman recently scored a number 1 on the Official Albums Chart in the UK with his debut album ‘Tribute’ which features the smash hit ‘Love Me Again’.
He also revealed recently why on his album there were no collaborations despite having a phonebook filled people to work with. It now seems that John Newman wants to take on the US in 2014.
John Newman, 23 may have a short career but he’s definitely doing things right and making a name for himself.
While he’s already worked with the likes of Rudimental he recently admitted that he didn’t collaborate with anyone on his album because he wanted to make his debut album his own work.
The singer though has now revealed plans that he plans to head to the USA for a series of shows in 2014.
In an interview with Digital Spy the singer said said he’s making performing in the states a priority for next year:
“We’ve run out of minutes this year, but we’re going out there in January. America is looking really good already though.”
“My label have done a brilliant release strategy. They’ve released ‘Love Me Again’ as an EP to get interest, and they’re doing a ‘complete my album’ on iTunes when it comes out.”
He continued: “It’s really exciting – America is the big one. From what I’ve heard, it’s great fun and you see great progression. Now’s the time for UK acts to do it.”
Newman also discussed his future in music and revealed that he wants to enjoy longevity:
“I haven’t made it – I’ve still got 50 years to go. People might call me a flop in 50 years and people might not be listening to my music, but I’ll still be making it and that’s the plan.”
