Calum will undoubtedly perform his new song Für Ewig – which means “forever” – during his two concerts at COP26 ahead of his single release on Friday 26 November.

“Für Ewig is influenced by the folk music styles of musicians like Phil Ochs,” Calum said. “The track also incorporates contemporary folk-pop / folk-rock styles, which gives the song a more complete sound.

“I wrote and recorded this single myself in my home studio – continuing a learning process I started when I was preparing my EP, A View From the Notebooks. The final production was mixed by a musician, Berlin-based songwriter and producer Tobias Thiele at the Whitelake Studio in Berlin.

“This song is for anyone trying to gain a foothold in a fast-paced, ever-changing world.”

Calum plans to keep his busy schedule going in 2022, recording and releasing new music and performing at the in-person launch of the film Exiles – for which he created the soundtrack – in February at Webster’s Theater in Glasgow and will also perform at the Edinburgh May Day Festival at the Pleasance Theater in May.
