Calum Scott releases new single 'What I Miss Most' and it was inspired by his life when he was overseas
Breakout singer-songwriter Calum Scott releases a new single, 'What I Miss Most'. This is a soundtrack which should be on everyone's playlist as it reminds you of summer travels and days soaking up the sun. Calum wrote the song while he was overseas and it is greatly inspired by the feelings he was going through when he was away from his loved ones.
"Whilst writing the album, I found myself in countries I’d never been to, missing family, friends, missing the city I had grown up in.. writing had become a therapy and it was the only way I could release that emotion. ‘What I Miss Most’ is definitely my tribute to my hometown of Hull but is a song for anybody that misses ‘home’," he said. For anyone who knows what it feels to be away from their dear ones, this song will be greatly appreciated and related.
Calum's album, 'Only Human' is the biggest selling debut album by both a male artist and by a British artist of the year so far. 'What I Miss Most' also follows on the heels of Scott’s previous singles; 'You Are The Reason'. The song became a popular hit among the audience.
Within days of its debut, it managed to get 1.2 million adjusted singles, 210 million combined streams and 120 million video views including 85 million on the official video. At the same time, the singer has done songs like 'Rhythm Inside', and his poignant version of Robyn’s 'Dancing On My Own', which became a global sensation.
It was the best-selling U.K. single of 2016 by a British solo artist and was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single. 'Dancing On My Own' quickly charted in over 34 countries on Spotify, peaking at No. 1 on the Viral chart in six countries, including the US. The song has 550 million streams worldwide, while the video has surpassed 260 million views.
Meanwhile, the song also charted at No. 1 on iTunes in 11 countries and is certified Platinum in four countries. In the UK, it hit #2 on the Official Singles Sales chart, was the most-downloaded song of the summer, and ranks as one of the most-played songs of 2016 at UK radio.
