Saint Raymond has unveiled his new single "I Want You", which is available to stream now and will be released at all DSPs on August 25 via Elektra Records. The 19-year-old singer/songwriter is confirmed as main support to Ed Sheeran on his upcoming European arena tour this fall.
“I Want You” made its premiere last night with a strong endorsement from UK’s Zane Lowe as the “Future Exclusive” track on his popular Radio 1 show.
Nottingham-based Callum Burrows aka Saint Raymond says about the forthcoming single; an amalgamation of afro beat guitar, looping chorus’ and summer-tinged melodies –
“I wrote 'I Want You' fairly recently, so not only am I looking forward to releasing it, but also to introducing it to my setlist and performing it live. It is an up-tempo, energetic and summery song so I think it will be a fun moment at festivals.”
