Yesterday James Arthur performed live for the first time in US his single “Can I be him” during Good Morning America show.
The track, co-written with Negin Djafari, Rick Parkhouse and George Tizzard, is the third single to be taken from British singer’s second studio album “Back from the edge”, released last October.
About the track’s inspiration, James explained: “I think a lot of us have those insecurities and wonder whether we can find that special somebody and maybe we’re doubting ourselves, maybe we lack confidence. And I just wanted to write something from my imagination that’s not necessarily about anybody.”
“Like everybody else, I wanna be the most special person to somebody” he added.
“Can I be him” follows hit singles “Say you won’t let go” and “Safe inside“.
Arthur is currently on tour with OneRepublic on their Honda Civic Tour.
