Rising Scottish singer/songwriter Callum Beattie releases his brand-new single, ‘What It means’, the second single from his forthcoming second album ‘Vandals’.


A striking, bittersweet love song ‘What It Means’ displays Callum at his anthemic best, with a beautiful arrangement of strings and guitar emphasising his skill for melody and huge choruses. The track was co-written with acclaimed songwriters John Ryan (One Direction, Katy Perry) and Wayne Hector (Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj).

The song is the second single from Callum’s highly anticipated new album, ‘Vandals’, which will be released on the 24th February.

Now Callum is back with the next chapter in his music career, releasing his highly anticipated second studio album ‘Vandals.’ The album goes right back to his roots, a selection of songs penned about Scotland, working class life, and coming of age. “I grew up in a post Thatcher Britain, in a fairly rough part of Scotland, raised by my dad, and experienced the poverty and roughness of those times first hand,” says Callum. “Culturally, it was a very specific period in history, where you could almost feel the class divide on the local streets. I feel strongly that we are moving towards a culturally similar period in history.

The artwork from the album also has significant meaning, with Callum explaining “We chose to take a different approach to the artwork and have used an iconic photo by a very iconic photographer called Gavin Watson. Gavin was the inspiration behind Shane Meadows’ ‘This Is England,’ and working with him was a dream come true.

Callum Beattie’s route is paved with empathy, a working-class voice speaking with profound honesty. “That’s what music is” Callum explains. “It’s about making somebody feel better about their life”
