When you’ve been following an artist as closely as we’ve been watching Albert Man, a new release is always a time of joy and anticipation. He’s been working on a batch of new music for 2018 and the first offering, the single “Say Something Loving”, drops on 2 February.

It goes without saying that we’re absolutely delighted to bring it to you first, as we premiere both the song and its accompanying video here.

Albert Man has the kind of voice that sells a love song without getting all mushy and melancholy. Sit him at a piano and he’ll tell it like it is. Relatable charm shines through spot-on storytelling, which is why he’s been steadily gathering a following of fans who appreciate that lived-in style. “Say Something Loving” takes it up a notch or three. This is Man revealing his soul side, no holds barred, crying out for commitment:

“When I’m with you why do you pretend,
That we’re nothing much more than friends?,
If there’s any room left in your heart,
Say something loving.”

Don’t worry, the keyboards are still there, but there’s dreamy production, engagingly intermittent percussion and deliciously layered backing, supporting his signature, searing vocals.

Squeezed into a radio-friendly 3-minute, 38-second track, “Say Something Loving” sets out Man’s stall as an artist to be reckoned with in 2018. And if you need any more convincing, check out the accompanying video. We predict that animations will be big this year, and Man is definitely ahead of the trend with this gem.

Take a look at the video, or listen to the audio below. The song can be pre-ordered here and you can catch Albert Man live in London on 7 February, at the 1901 Arts Club – tickets here.
