What a 6-months it’s been for James Arthur. After returning with his single Say You Won’t Let Go last September, James has gone onto achieve #1’s on both the Official Singles and Album Chart, sold out multiple tours and picked up two BRIT Nominations. Now he returns with the announcement that his next single to be taken from Back From The Edge is Can I Be Him.

Can I Be Him is the third single to be taken from his Platinum second album, following the hit singles Say You Won’t Let Go and Safe Inside. Can I Be Him, which can be downloaded / streamed from, is a fan favourite from the record and shows off James’ distinctive and exceptional vocals.

James recently announced his first arena tour, kicking off in Leeds on 16th November. Tickets are on sale now from and and are selling fast. The tour hits London’s legendary SSE Arena Wembley on 24th November and Ella Henderson will support on all 9 UK dates. James wrapped up his last UK tour just last month and it sold out in minutes and earned him rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

Billed as The Comeback of the Year by many, James’s run of success shows no sign of slowing down through 2017. He visits the USA again this month for performances on The Ellen DeGeneres show and The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. This Summer, James supports One Republic on their US arena tour, headlines shows in Europe and Asia and has been confirmed for a number of the UK’s biggest festivals.
