James Arthur Vinyl Release


September 13, 2021 — James Arthur today announces a special 5th anniversary double vinyl release of his No.1 album Back from the Edge, available in Canada on December 10, 2021. 

The vinyl is available to pre-order now.

Alongside the original album, which includes the global smash hit “Say You Won’t let Go,” the vinyl also includes an acoustic version of ‘Train Wreck,” not on the original album. “Train Wreck” recently hit the Official UK Singles Chart after finding a new lease on life via Tik Tok. The track is now certified Gold in the UK and Platinum in the USA, with over 480 million streams.

Back from the Edge has been a massive global success, selling over 3.9 million copies worldwide. The record has gone 4x platinum in India; 3x platinum in Norway, Sweden, Indonesia, Philippines, and Middle East; 2x platinum in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Turkey, Australia, Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore; and platinum in the USA, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Russia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Taiwan.

James has sold over 30 million records worldwide and has to date released three hugely successful albums: James Arthur (UK No.2), Back from the Edge (UK No.1), and YOU (UK No.2), alongside nine solo UK Top 40 singles. He has had two No.1 smash hits and was awarded a disc for reaching a billion streams on Spotify with “Say You Won’t Let Go,” the No.1 global hit that put the singer-songwriter from Middlesbrough back on the map (it currently has 1.7 billion streams on the platform). 

James recently dominated the airwaves and charts with “Lasting Lover,” his storming collaboration with Sigala. The track was a No.1 airplay song in the UK, No.1 on iTunes and Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart.

James recently signed a new record deal in the UK with Columbia Records (a co-deal with Columbia Records Germany) and announced his 4th LP release It’ll All Make Sense In The End, out November 5th.

With this album from day one there was a sound that I wanted to go for. Even early on it sounded like a real album, a proper body of work. This is the first time I’ve made an album all in one place and you can hear this in the music. There’s something really comfortable about working in your own home with a select group of people – I was able to be more vulnerable than ever.”
