When John Newman used his UK success with “Feel The Love” as a springboard to launch his solo chart-topping single “Love Me Again” in 2013, it seemed like the dawn of a new era of soulful British male vocalists — and it pretty much was, although Sam Smith quickly swooped in and stole John’s thunder.

Newman kept busy in 2014 by collaborating with Calvin Harris on their hit “Blame” and readying his sophomore album, which is due out sometime this year. The first single off the LP is “Come And Get It,” a proper pop and soul jam co-produced by John and Greg Kurstin that’s miles ahead of “Blame” and on par with, though different than, “Love Me Again.” Basically, it’s a much more upbeat cut for John compared to the blue material that filled his last album, which feels like a step in the right direction.
