The last 12 months have been a hugely exciting and successful time for Olly Murs. He released his debut single in August 2010, which promptly shot straight to number one. His debut album followed in November and is about to be certified double platinum (600,000 sales). Earlier this year he played a sold out UK tour including three nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. He is currently on tour with JLS. This new single, taken from Olly’s forthcoming second album (due out later this year), features hotly tipped Brighton duo Rizzle Kicks.
Olly said: “Heart Skips A Beat marks the start of the next chapter for me. The song has a new sound, and getting Rizzle Kicks to feature on it was the icing on the cake. Those guys are amazing!”
The single will be released with the b-side ‘On My Cloud’, another new song co-written by Olly with Sam Preston and Mark Taylor.
Single: “Heart Skips a Beat” Out: 21st August.
