MTV VMA nominee JC Stewart adds to his rising star status and 250 million+ streams by sharing his brand new single “Scars”. It follows two big tracks already this year for the pop singer-songwriter.
“Love Like That”, saw him grace the cover of Spotify’s New Pop UK playlist and pick up Radio 1 Best New Pop airplay and a feature on the Armin van Buuren/Billen Ted dance hit “Come Around Again”.
“Scars” is released as JC’s long-awaited European headline tour, The Tour After The Tour That Didn’t Tour, is now underway. It includes his biggest shows to date in both London and Belfast. JC’s instantly relatable, emotionally charged songwriting is given a subtle shift with “Scars”. While he usually pours his heart into stories of heartache and break-ups, “Scars” instead celebrates how those challenges have shaped the person he is today.
JC’s tenacious, touching vocal powers an affecting summer pop smash which provides a beacon of hope for fans who are struggling with their own battles. As the hook so euphorically expresses, what currently feels insurmountable will one day be just a memory: “I wear my scars and the stories that they’re painting. They hurt like hell, but damn it feels amazing”.
JC wrote “Scars” with producer Anton Hard and co-writer Linnea Södahl. The song is released alongside a full live band performance video, which provides a tantalising teaser of what to expect from JC’s current tour. Outside of his fan favourites “I Need You To Hate Me“, “Break My Heart” and “Lying That You Love Me”, JC is also firmly established as a go-to collaborator from an eclectic mix of major artists. He has also collaborated with 220 Kid, Jonasu and Kina, co-wrote Lewis Capaldi’s “Hollywood” and collaborated on his own songs with Niall Horan. JC also enjoys a long-term friendship with The Vamps, most recently performing as part of the handpicked line-up at their Barcelona Weekender extravaganza.
