Album Review

Singer, songwriter, and producer John Newman broke through with lead vocals on two 2012 U.K. hits by Rudimental. He presented himself as a soul-inspired shouter wise beyond his years. The following May, he released his debut solo single, "Love Me Again" — cathartic, bulky, modern soul outfitted with the works, including a racing breakbeat, a furiously played piano riff, darting and beaming horns, singing strings, a screaming chorus, and even a little wriggling guitar that recalled the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hanging On." In the U.K., it went to number one and went platinum, and the follow-up single, the slightly less forceful "Cheating," peaked at number nine. The ensuing album, Tribute, would presumably offer those hits and more of Newman's all-out, ear-splitting breakup songs. Does it ever. If Newman didn't have his voice, used almost exclusively for in-the-red confrontations and testimonies, the outlet for his grief might be something equally extreme, like skimboarding, street luge, or some form of demolition work. As one line in "Runnin'" goes, "I'm a hurricane that ain't stoppin'." While at just short of 50 minutes, Tribute is concise by the early-2010s standard, its unflagging succession of belters is impressive, delivered with a supreme level of grieving conviction and hefty productions seemingly designed for the sake of filling stadiums and megachurches. In small doses, Newman's work here provides quite an impassioned jolt. [Tribute was also released with a bonus track, "Day One."]

Biography

Born: June 19, 1990 in Settle, North Yorkshire, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '10s

Yorkshire, U.K.-born soul artist John Newman had his Otis Redding-inspired tone brought to the fore on the two 2012 singles which effectively introduced the London drum'n'bass act Rudimental to the mainstream. Released in May 2012, within a couple of months the powerful and upbeat "Feel the Love" had reached the number one spot in the U.K., while the anthemic "Not Giving In" — also featuring London-born singer/songwriter Alex Clare — followed that November. Newman's assured vocal on both...
