Especially amongst soul-lovers, James Morrison is a well-known name, and not least in Denmark where the British singer had his big breakthrough in 2006 with the big hit ‘You Give Me Something’.

With his distinctive rasping voice and intense expression, he sang his way straight into everyone’s hearts at the age of only 21.

Just one year after his debut album Undiscovered came out, James was nominated for the Brit Awards for Best British Breakthrough Act and Best Single.

His first album sold no less than 3 million copies worldwide, so it is safe to say that he went straight to the top.

When he came out with his follow- up album in 2008, it included the mega hit ‘Broken Strings’ on which he featured pop singer Nelly Furtado.

After touring the world for 18 months with his third album, which came out in 2011, he took a break from writing and performing to spend some time with his family, but now he is finally back.

This time he has just released his long awaited fourth album, Higher Than Here.

“I feel like I’ve been locked away for a long time, but now I’m out again and looking forward to playing my new songs,” said Morrison in a press release.

“I’ve just finished the album, experimented a bit and gone to some new places – and it’s my best ever.”
