To celebrate the release of his new album titled 'Bridges', Calum Scott visits Kingston to play an in-store set.
The fourth single released from Bridges, “Heaven” once again reveals Calum’s gift for finding unexpected ways to express universal emotions. “As songwriters, we’re always searching for new ways of saying ‘I miss you’ or ‘I love you’ or ‘I want you back,’” says Calum, who co-wrote “Heaven” with Hayley Warner (an Australian singer/songwriter who’s also penned songs for artists like Katy Perry and Tori Kelly). “‘The concept of ‘Heaven’ is the love between two people being so powerful that it is far superior to anything else, any other form of paradise that could be offered. I loved the idea of putting the power into the relationship.”
Produced by Fraser T. Smith, “Heaven” unfolds in a dynamic arrangement of soulful piano work, luminous strings, and elegantly swinging drumbeats — a glorious backdrop to Calum’s masterful vocal performance. “It felt important to really push my vocal range on a song like this, so by the first chorus I’m already up in the rafters,” he says. “But if you’re talking about something so passionate, it should be delivered in a very passionate way.” Threaded with lyrics that offer a certain poetic wisdom (e.g., “What good is life if we’re all just waiting to dance in the sky?”), the result is a breathtaking tribute to living in the moment by fully surrendering to love.
