Nathan Sykes To Tour With Alessia Cara, Debut Album Due In Fall
Alessia Cara certainly isn’t going to get lonely while touring this fall. UK crooner Nathan Sykes will now be joining already-announced opener Ruth B for Cara’s upcoming North American dates in late September through October.
In further Sykes news, the former Wanted member’s debut solo album looks to be getting a fall release, via Def Jam. The 23 year old spent the last year-and-a-half writing and recording songs for the LP with the likes of Diane Warren, Harmony Samuels, Ldn Noise and Babyface.
During a chat with Idolator in 2015, Sykes told us the following about working with Warren: “You wouldn’t think that she’s had over a billion record sales. She’s as hungry now as I imagine she was on day one. You listen to the song [I did with her] on the album, and you’d just be like, ‘That is not a Diane Warren song. Never in a million years is that a Diane Warren song!’ It’s a funky, Jamiroquai-esque record. It’s not what you’d expect.”
Above, watch the sultry video for Nathan’s single “Give It Up,” featuring G-Eazy, which was officially made available on US iTunes today (July 22). Then catch his upcoming North American tour dates with Alessia Cara below.
