Calum Scott Lands Viral Hit With Robyn Cover, Announces US Tour
Calum Scott has a hit on his hands with a stripped-back, acoustic version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” The out singer/songwriter, who got his big break on Britain’s Got Talent, self-released the cover in April and watched it climb all the way to number two on the UK singles chart. It’s now shaping up to be an international hit with huge streaming numbers (36 million+ on Spotify) and worldwide iTunes success (top 5 in 17 countries). The 27-year-old has his sights set on the US, in particular, and will promote the song with a fall tour.
“I am beyond excited to announce my very first American tour!” the Brit said in a statement. “It’s an absolute privilege to sing for so many American crowds and I just can’t wait share all the new music I’ve been working on.” Calum will also make his US TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers on September 14.
