Scottish singer-songwriter Callum Beattie release his long-awaited debut album People Like Us on via 3beat / Universal. People Like Us is a lucid insight into Callum Beattie’s tumultuous and joyous personal journey so far - from Edinburgh to London to Berlin and back again, these are the songs of Callum Beattie’s life, both his childhood ups and downs, and his more recent upheavals. After a few performances at open mic nights, Beattie soon made fruitful contacts on the local music scene, and wrote ‘Connection’ with a longtime American in Berlin, songwriter Michael Ochs (Cheat Codes). Then he hooked up with producer David Jürgens in the Funk Haus studio (an old Second World War listening station) to record the brace of new songs which subsequently form the basis of Beattie’s debut album. Callum’s strikingly rich vocal shines throughout the fifteen-track album, which provides a diverse soundscape that’s indicative of his wide-spanning experiences that influenced his work. People Like Us includes the irresistible new single Talk About Love, the incredibly poignant Some Heroes Don’t Wear Capes, Beattie’s debut single We Are Stars and the upbeat Man Behind The Sun. People Like Us is set to be one of the most exciting debut albums of 2020 - it’s a collection of songs clawed from the raw stuff of existence, nostalgic patriotism and bleeding love. It’s real, and it’s moving, and it’s uplifting, and it’s healing. Callum Beattie is an undeniably deft musician with boundless potential, it’s only the beginning of what’s to come from the multi-instrumentalist.
