John Newman 'Losing Sleep'
As if 2013 wasn't a good enough year for John Newman - he scored a number one album and single back in October - it's looking increasingly likely that things are only going to get bigger and better for him 2014. His debut single 'Love Me Again' has, unsurprisingly, started making waves in the US and recently entered the Billboard Hot 100, where it looks set for steady ascent.

As such, you'd expect that he's been losing out on a few hours' kip in recent months, but it's actually a love interest that's causing him sleepless nights on his latest offering. "It's 3am, I'm calling in to tell you that without you here I'm losing sleep," he sings in his powerful yet gravely tone over militant handclaps and a moody, soul-pop piano line - before making a passionate plea for his lover not to forget about him. We hate to break it to you, John, but global fame doesn't come without difficult compromises.
