The British pop sensation James Morrison has a new single featuring Nelly Furtado called “Broken Strings”. After debuting at number 73 in December, it has since broken into the top ten, and it’s getting lots of radio play.
With a successful album, called “Songs for You, Truths for Me”, James is looking to nab the award for Best Male Solo Artist at the Brit Awards, which will be announced live on February 18, 2009. Other nominees include Ian Brown, Paul Weller, Streets, and Will Young. Some online betting sites are instructing fans to put their money on Morrison.
Last night, James gave us a listen to his new “Broken Strings” single on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. Coming up, James is set to play at Coachella this April, a huge gig considering he’ll be sharing the stage with (well playing almost the same stage within 24 hours of) Paul McCartney. Prior to that, he’ll be touring in the both the US and the UK.
