John Newman Covers Carly Rae Jepsen in the Live Lounge

As part of BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge month, today’s session was courtesy of the incredible John Newman, dazzling listeners with his soulful voice.

After a chat with presenter Clara Amfo, John took to the mic to perform his latest single Tiring Game. This was followed by an uplifting gospel version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Run Away With Me. With no less than eight gospel singers in tow, John put on a performance to remember! The full Live Lounge performance is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

It was also announced today that John will do three HMV signings in October in support of his new album and book, Revolve. John will be visiting HMV Oxford Street, Manchester and Birmingham Bullring. Oxford Street is a ticketed event whilst Manchester and Birmingham are first come, first served.  All the information you need is on the HMV Live page.
