Multi-platinum singer-songwriter James Arthur today releases a brand-new acoustic video of his emotionally charged song ‘Train Wreck’. ‘Train Wreck’ was written and recorded for his debut No.1 album ‘Back From The Edge’, but has recently found a new lease of life via Tik Tok.
The track has been trending on Tik Tok for weeks, following many users falling in love with the song and uploading videos featuring it.
Watch the new acoustic video below:
‘Train Wreck’ continues to grow momentum, currently garnering over 1.5 million daily streams and entering the Global Spotify Top 100 Chart.
“The song ‘Train Wreck’ means a lot to me. I wrote that song as part of the ‘Back From The Edge’ album and anyone who’s heard the album knows it’s a sort of a redemption themed record. I was in probably the worst place I’ve ever been in my personal life and in my career. I was writing music about redemption; I was trying to pull myself out of a dark place and get back to where I wanted to be.
I felt like my dreams were over and the song’s for anyone who’s ever felt that way, who’s ever felt like they’ve lost sight of their dreams or they’ve lost someone or something and not to give up hope. There’s always a thread of hope and I hope that’s felt in the song and in the lyric and ultimately that’s what it’s all about.”
James Arthur has sold over 30 million records worldwide. Last year he was awarded a disc for reaching a billion streams on Spotify with his No.1 global hit ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’, an amazing feat when you consider only 99 records have achieved a billion streams on Spotify in history.
James has released three hugely successful albums ‘James Arthur’ (No.2), ‘Back From The Edge’ (No.1) and last year’s ‘YOU’ (No.2), alongside nine solo UK Top 40 singles, including two No.1 smash hits. To encourage people to stay home and stay safe during this global health crisis, James recently launched his ‘Safe Inside’ campaign which included specially recorded music and new videos, with all profits from James and his record label being donated directly to NHS Charities Together and SANE.
James is currently dominating the airwaves and charts with his storming collaboration with Sigala ‘Lasting Lover’. The track is currently the No.1 airplay song in the UK, No.1 on iTunes, Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart and has been streamed over 25 million times on Spotify.
