Rising British star singer-songwriter Olly Murs aims once again for the other side of the pond as his sophomore effort is set for a March 10, 2015 release date. Never Been Better will be the anticipated follow-up to his 2013 breakout debut Right Place Right Time, which spawned the hit “Troublemaker” featuring Flo Rida.
Pre-orders have already commenced for Never Been Better, which will treat fans to a download of “Wrapped Up,” the funk-infused first single from the album that features Travie McCoy (Gym Class Heroes) instantly after pre-order. Those who do so will get first dibs on new singles on a bi-weekly basis, most notably the title track and a collab with Demi Lovato titled “Up.”
The album already is hitting its marks on the other side of the Atlantic and in other parts of the world, giving Murs a third straight no. 1 album in his native U.K. and Top 10 status in 31 other countries. He also snares Top-5 status on iTunes in 16 different countries for good measure.
“I definitely have a vision in my head,” says Olly in a press release by the label. “Your experience grows, your outlook changes. I love to work with other people, to get the ideas bouncing around.” Most of the songs on Never Been Better were co-written by Murs, whose personal goal was to approach every track at the top of his game. “I think this album is my ‘I mean it’ album. It’s time to come out of my shell and get a bit more serious.”
Never Been Better will be released in the U.S. on Tuesday, March 10.
