Craig David announces new album by dropping a single
The new album will see a return to the singer’s roots of simple story telling with a UK R&B soundtrack
Craig David will release his new album titled The Time Is Now on 26 January. But if you can’t wait that long, the singer-songwriter has dropped a song to keep you going. Heartline is the first single from the record, which will feature collaborations with Bastille, AJ Tracey and Goldlink, to name a few.
“This is authentic me, doing what I love, just like I did when I was an unknown artist; that kid from Southampton making mixtapes in his bedroom and taking risks,” says David. “The motivation and inspiration behind this album was all down to the huge realisation that even when I wasn’t as focused, there were amazing lessons to be learnt.”
The album is the follow-up to last year’s comeback LP, Following My Intuition, which achieved a UK No.1 – his first since 2000’s debut album Born To Do It, which featured hits: 7 Days, Rewind, Rendezvous and Walking Away.
David has also revealed three live dates for November, tickets are available from 22 September:
O2 Academy Brixton (3)
Manchester’s The Warehouse Project (4)
O2 Academy Birmingham (5)
