John Newman unveils acoustic ‘Mama’ performance video

John Newman has treated his fans to an acoustic live session video of his track ‘Mama’.

Recorded backstage at The Polar Bear in Hull during his recent Out Of The Blue tour, John delivers a heartfelt performance of a song which is of course dedicated to his beloved mum.

Oh Mama thank you, for being my Mother and Father too
I know it wasn’t easy, what we’ve been through
I want to take a moment to thank you

‘Mama’ is a gorgeous song which was a huge sentimental moment during his tour. Anyone who’s close to their mum, in particularly those who grew up in a single parent household, will most definitely resonate with the beautiful lyrics.

Watch the acoustic video for ‘Mama’ below.

‘Mama’ is one of three songs taken from John’s recently released Out Of The Blue (Acoustic) EP. It also includes ‘Forever’s Not Long Enough’ and ‘The Hardest Word is Goodbye’.

Having recently completed an intimate tour of the UK, John will be heading back out on the road this October, playing larger venues with a full band set up. A full list of tickets and dates can be found here.

John has also teased that he will be dropping another announcement a week on Monday, which has caused great excitement within his fanbase.
