Take a pinch of Sia's vocalizations, Adele's fiery lyrics and the tone of Imagine Dragons and you have John Newman. This British musician has the iTunes Single of the Week for this week and it's absolutely amazing. While John is a weird looking fellow, his song "Love Me Again" is suave and fun.
The track has interesting construction, blending rock with jazz undertones and a pop sensibility to the repetitive chorus. John's accented voice is so unique, that I almost didn't understand the first few lines of the song. The verses start of calm and collected, before bursting into a pleading refrain about falling back into love.
The music video for "Love Me Again" is stylish and entertaining, cutting to scenes of an attractive couple getting to know each other in an outdated dance hall. Meanwhile John sings from the stage dressed in a suit sans tie. Filled with quirky dancing, hipster outfits, and a surprising ending, this music video is a hit.
