With tickets selling out in a matter of minutes for his 'Overproof Tour' this November, including three nights at Brixton Academy, the UK's biggest breakout star of 2017, Rag'n'Bone Man today announces his new single 'As You Are', taken from his hit album 'Human', out now on Columbia Records.
The video is a very personal affair for Rory. Shot at his local pub, it features friends and family, including among others; Odetta, who was the inspiration for a track on the record and Rum Committee; his crew from Brighton who he's been involved with for over 10 years.
Speaking about the video Rory explains, "the song is about being really content with somebody that you genuinely love and like, you might think that sounds cheesy but it's true. I wanted to reflect that in the video and how do you do that was like show actual genuine emotion between friends and family and people that you actually love."
Watch the behind the scenes of the video here:
2017 has been the year of Rag'n'Bone Man. His debut album 'Human' is the second biggest selling album in the UK this year (the highest debut) selling an astonishing 670,000 copies in under 5 months. The new track, 'As You Are' follows Rag'n'Bone Man's ever present radio hit 'Skin' and is the newest single to be taken from his multi-platinum selling album 'Human'.
This summer has already seen Rory play the IOW Festival alongside a triumphant set on the Other Stage at Glastonbury, and he still has TRNSMT and Bestival to come before heading out for the following UK & Eire dates in November.
