Sigala & Ella Eyre - Came Here For Love
Sigala and Ella Eyre dive into summer with the young superstar producer’s biggest record to date ‘Came Here For Love’. Released 9 June by Ministry of Sound Recordings, Sigala’s ‘Came Here For Love’ is the prolific 24 year old Brit’s 8thsingle, and the first of more new material to be released in 2017.
In less than two years, Sigala has earned 2 Platinum singles (plus a Gold, and 2 Silvers), 700 million online streams (Spotify and Vevo), and sold 2.5 million singles. In 2016, he was the most played British Male Artist across UK commercial radio in 2016 (and second most played artist overall).
Earlier this year, Sigala sold out all 8 dates of his second UK live tour (having sold out the first last autumn), turning chart success into hard ticket sales with a show that’s brought a riot of colour back to UK dance pop. A new live tour will be announced soon. Meanwhile, Sigala’s key festival shows this summer include Creamfields, Tomorrowland, V Festival, and Pukkelpop, plus headline club dates from Ushuaia Ibiza to Las Vegas’ legendary Marquee Nightclub.
Sigala’s rapid rise has seen him become one of the most successful dance producers of the decade. His debut single ‘Easy Love’ debuted at No.1, breaking Ministry of Sound’s pre-order record. Following two more Top 5 singles, ‘Sweet Lovin’, and ‘Say You Do’ (featuring Imani & DJ Fresh), he hit the Top 10 again with ‘Give Me Your Love’, his collaboration with John Newman and Nile Rodgers. He also collaborated with Craig David (who joined Sigala for his first Radio 1 Live Lounge session) on ‘Ain’t Giving Up’. To date, Sigala’s been tipped by Radio 1, Capital, Kiss, MTV, Daily Mirror, The Sun, Evening Standard, Popbitch, Digital Spy, Shortlist, Clash, Complex, SubSoul, and beyond.
For most people, having a BRIT, a MOBO, a No.1 single and a Top 5 album – all before the age of 22 – would be achievement enough for a lifetime. But Ella Eyre isn’t most people. From the moment she tore onto the scene as a fiercely energetic, lion-haired 19-year-old, lending her precociously soulful voice to Rudimental’s chart topping single ‘Waiting All Night’, Eyre didn’t pause for breath. She picked up a BRIT Award for British Single Of The Year, co-wrote another UK No.1 single, Sigma’s ‘Changing’, won Best Newcomer at the MOBOs and finally, after a handful of high charting solo singles, released her top 5 debut album, Feline, in 2015.
