Best British male Brit award winner in 2007 and a man whose first album in the same year debuted at the top of the UK album charts, James Morrison is back.

Name checked by none other than Paul Weller as “one of the great British vocalists,” Morrison is gearing up to tour and has released a best back catalogue album.

Usually a snapshot of the past, James Morrison’s new Greatest Hits album celebrates where he’s come from, where he’s now at, and what comes next.

The album out now coincides with 15th anniversary of James winning Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist.His greatest hits full band shows from March 10 follows a week of intimate acoustic sets.

James Morrison Greatest Hits album out now

The Greatest Hits album is full of refreshed versions of the big moments and all-time favourites from James Morrison’s hugely successful back catalogue. Those songs include Broken Strings, You Give Me Something, I Won’t Let You Go and others which have been revitalised.

What’s more, two brand new songs show that James continues to evolve as an artist. That’s particularly true of the album’s lead single Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?, which spent four weeks on Radio 2’s B-list and accumulated 1000 plays at UK radio.

Next month will see him hit the road for a Greatest Hits full band headline tour, which includes a prestigious London show at the Palladium.

The tour then goes to Europe from late April. Schedule involves co-headlining Kew The Music with Will Young, Wembley Stadium as Westlife special guest, and Blenheim Palace with David Gray.
