Callum Beattie is back with the infectious new track ‘Talk About Love’, out now via 3Beat. Beattie’s highly anticipated debut album ‘People Like Us’ will be out 15th May 2020. He will also be hitting the road in March / April headlining shows in UK and Germany, tickets are now on sale.
Self-written single ‘Talk About Love’ is an upbeat guitar led production which transcends into a joyous chorus. Callum’s raw, distinctive vocal sings about being unable to expose his emotions. However, being in a loving relationship changes this and he becomes open about his adoration for the other person. Callum explains: “’Talk About Love’ is a song I wrote about my own insecurities. It’s a song about finding it hard to express emotions towards certain people for fear of letting my guard down and what that would lead to.”
The new single follows on from Callum’s incredibly poignant track ‘Some Heroes Don’t Wear Capes’, which was a heartfelt tribute to his father. The re-release has been well-received with the track garnering over 400K Spotify streams and Beattie’s monthly listeners increasing by +200%.
