Ot has been the most talked about and relevant return to music by an artist in decades! 16 years after his debut album reached Number 1, Craig is back at the top. With his latest album, ‘Following My Intuition’ going straight to Number 1 in the Official Albums Chart when released just a few weeks ago, Craig today announces the release of hisnew single ‘Change My Love’, out now via Insanity/Speakerbox.
Add to that a headline TS5 tour which sold-out in seconds, selling out shows all over the globe and announcing a huge 16 date arena tour for 2017, it would be an understatement to say that the last year has been anything short of monumental for Craig.
A standout track from the album, ’Change My Love’ showcases the contrast of genres on ‘Following My Intuition’. Full of infectious melodies blended with an RnB feel – this MNEK co-write is the sound of the Craig David we fell in love with but in a fresh new form.
16 years since the critically-acclaimed, ‘Born To Do It’ changed his life, Craig catapulted back into the charts and in to the nation’s hearts with Big Narstie on the gold certified single ‘When The Bassline Drops’, marking the beginning of his triumphant return. Craig has since leapt from strength to strength on our airwaves, and has been unavoidable on our TV screens and on the live circuit ever since.
A perfect mix of Craig’s pioneering garage sound, RnB and blazing club bangers, he wrote hundreds of tracks over the course of three years to make the most important album of his career. The album is a celebration of one of the UK’s most loved artists, back on British soil, and at the helm of his own unique, authentically British sound. A sound that made waves across the globe, making him the voice of one of the most pivotal eras in UK music, and in turn, making him one of the most successful artists in UK chart history.
Due to overwhelming demand, Craig David recently added dates to the UK leg of his world tour – his biggest UK arena tour in 15 years. The ‘Following My Intuition Tour ‘will see Craig perform at 15 venues throughout the UK between 16 March 2017 – 07 April 2017. Now including two dates at the iconic O2 Arena, the tour will be kicking off in Cardiff and ending in Dublin.
Demand for Craig’s live shows are higher than ever following the incredible success of his world famous, critically acclaimed ‘TS5’ shows. Starting out as the most exclusive pre-party in Miami, hosted in his penthouse home, Tower Suite 5, ‘TS5’ has gone on to become the must-see live event of the summer with Craig playing sets at the biggest festivals and clubs around the world. Having previously sold-out London’s KOKO, Brixton Academy and the Manchester Academy in a matter of seconds, he also took over Glastonbury’s Sonic Stage, bringing over 25k people to the tent and achieving the record for the biggest crowd at the stage in Glastonbury history. Craig has also spent his is summer in Ibiza with his residency at Ibiza Rocks Hotel.
