It’s time to meet James Newman, a British singer-songwriter who will represent United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands with the song “Embers”.
The upbeat and positive track was written by Conor Blake, Danny Shah, Tom Hollings, Samuel Brennan and James Newman.
About it, the 35 year old artist said: “‘Embers’ is about those sparks that don’t die out. When we were writing this, it felt like I wanted to show everyone that we were coming back together. It’s about having that connection and something re-igniting. It’s about us emerging from this rubbish time we’ve been having. It fits with the idea that Eurovision is coming back”.
Born in Settle in 1985, Newman is the older brother of singer John.
He began his musical career in 2013. James co-wrote the Rudimental’s single “Waiting all night”, which it earned him a Brit Award for Best Song.
To date, the artist has only one EP to his credit “The Things we do”, released last year. In his career he has written for several other artists including Little Mix, Backstreet Boys, Toni Braxton and Jess Glynne.

Lyrics:

Sometimes I know my fire burns low
But as long as you’re with me I’ll never get cold
‘Til day and night, ’til darkness and light
I never worry when you’re by my side
Oh, feelings change and seasons fade
But nothing will burn us out
Nothing can stop us now

Out of the embers
You and I are gonna light up the room
(Yeah, you and I gonna light up the room)
Out of the embers
There’s a fire burning for you
(Yeah, there’s a fire burning for you)
I feel the heat here
There’s still a chance for us
Down herе in the ashes, yeah, thеre’s something growing
Out of the embers
You and I are gonna light up the room
(Yeah, you and I gonna light)

Light up the room
Light up the room

You and me forever, we’re free
We’re cool under pressure, and that’s all we need
So take my hand, and forget the past
We’re in this together, there’s no looking back
Oh, feelings change and seasons fade
But nothing will burn us out
Nothing can stop us now

Out of the embers
You and I are gonna light up the room
(Yeah, you and I gonna light up the room)
Out of the embers
There’s a fire burning for you
(Yeah, there’s a fire burning for you)
I feel the heat here
There’s still a chance for us
Down here in the ashes, yeah, there’s something growing
Out of the embers
You and I are gonna light up the room
(Yeah, you and I gonna light)
Light up the room
Out of the embers
You and I are gonna light up the room
(Yeah, you and I gonna light up the room)
Out of the embers
You and I are gonna light up the room
(Yeah, you and I gonna light up the room)

Light up the room
Light up the room
