English singer and songwriter Calum Scott wrapped up his Hong Kong debut show on Thursday (Nov.1) for his 'Only Human' Asia Tour at Hong Kong, Musiczone at E-Max, Kitec.
Before the show, Scott expressed his gratitude on twitter: “SO excited for my first show here tonight and if you haven’t got your copy of ‘Only Human’, I’m bringing my albums too!! Can’t wait to see you!! ”
The 30-year-old singer performed his global hits including “You Are The Reason”, “What I Miss The Most”, and “Rhythm Inside”, as well as his new single "No Matter What".
"'No Matter What is without question the most personal song I have ever written and the one I am most proud of," Calum Scott shared with Billboard Radio China. "It's a song born from loneliness, acceptance and the heartbreaking but liberating tale of my coming out experience. What I love about this song is that it isn’t just limited to a story of sexual identity, but about the relationship between parent and child and acceptance as a whole. This song didn’t make my debut album because I simply wasn’t ready at that time to give it to the world. It felt too personal to share, but as with all of my songwriting, I've written this from the heart to try and inspire confidence and compassion in people and put some love back in to the world, which we could always use more of."
"No Matter What" is one of new songs which will appear on the special edition of 'Only Human', due for release on November 30 via Capitol Records. Other new songs include ‘Need To Know’, ‘Sore Eyes’, and Christmas song ‘White Christmas’.
Calum Scott first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 with his rendition of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own”, which achieved over 6.5 million sales.
