Rag'n'Bone Man has released the video for his new single 'Skin'. You can watch the video here.
Rag’n’Bone Man, AKA Rory Graham, releases his new single Skin, out now on Best Laid Plans / Columbia Records. Taken from his debut album Human which was released on February 10 to mass critical acclaim, the album was immediately certified gold and swiftly certified platinum just 3 weeks later having spent 2 consecutive weeks at the number 1 spot in the UK charts.
The phenomenal success of Human has resonated around the globe on an equally outstanding scale, with the album surpassing an amazing 1 million sales worldwide and hitting the number 1 spot on iTunes in over 30 countries. A hugely successful recent trip to the US saw Rory make his second US TV performance (following a recent appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and play a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Rory also made his SXSW debut last week where he played a plethora of packed shows across Austin, Texas.
Having won two BRIT Awards - making Rory the first BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner to win Best British Breakthrough Act in the same year - Rory is now back on the road performing and doing what he loves best. Currently on tour playing sold out shows across Europe, Rory arrives back in the UK from April 18 onwards where he will play a series of further sold out dates, including two nights at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire. His summer festival schedule is also booking up fast where he’ll perform at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, Wildlife, Parklife, Live At Leeds, Isle Of Wight, TRNSMT, Bestival, plus many more.
Following appearances on Later with Jools Holland (where he featured on two separate shows) and The Graham Norton Show, Rory will perform his new single Skin on Comic Relief tonight on BBC 1. The debut album Human from Rag’n’Bone Man has now sold an incredible 360K copies in the UK alone.

From the very lowest moment in her life the extraordinarily talented Rebecca Ferguson has produced a breath taking new album, ‘Superwoman’. It is set to be released 14th October and her first single ‘Bones’ will be available from 2nd September (impacting 7th October).
Forged from heartbreak and a tale of lover’s abandonment combined with the bittersweet joy of giving birth to his child, Superwoman is infused with the strength of a woman who has finally taken control. It is the ultimate soundtrack for anyone who has ever had to build themselves back up after a heartbreak Rebecca is stronger, happier and more fearless than ever before.
Rebecca says of the album “This is honest and emotionally complex, I found strength and security writing this album” adding “It’s my most personal album ever and it’s brought me to a place in my life where I feel strong. I called it Superwoman because I learnt to embrace my vulnerability and accept it as a strength.”
‘Superwoman’ was produced by Troy Miller (Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse), and features collaborators such as Jonny Lattimer (Ellie Goulding, James Bay), Negin Djafari (Miley Cyrus) and previous collaborator Eg White (Adele, Florence And The Machine, Sam Smith).
One of the most distinctive voices in pop, Rebecca has previously won critical acclaim for taking on the Billie Holiday songbook in previous release ‘Lady Sings The Blues’. The working class girl from Liverpool who battled so hard to make it as a singer has become one of the most exciting and compelling artists of our times. This is her fourth album, something not many ‘talent show’ contestants can say, but from the off there was always something intrinsically sincere about Rebecca’s delivery that set her apart from everyone else.
Since her break on X Factor six years ago, the once shy and insecure artist has gone on to win fans on both sides of the Atlantic, touring Britain, Europe and America winning plaudits from Adele as well as critics winning comparisons to her heroes Macy Gray and Aretha Franklin.
