"Love Me Again" is a single by English soul singer and musician John Newman. The song was released as a digital download in Europe on 17 May 2013, except for the United Kingdom where it was released on 30 June 2013 as the lead single from his debut studio album, Tribute (2013). The song was written by Newman and produced by Mike Spencer. It has been nominated for the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, at the 2014 BRIT Awards.[1]

Background[edit]

In an interview with Digital Spy, Newman was asked if he sensed that the song had something special about it in the studio. He said, "Yeah. The guy I wrote it with, we turned around and had massive grins on our faces thinking, 'There's something good here'. But you just never know how good it is, you know?".

Newman was also asked if it was hard to write the lyrics about love and break-up, he said, "No, it's the only place where I really open up to somebody, through my music. I'm producing [the album] and writing it, it's good. I like to keep a hold of everything".[2]

With the chord progression of Gm—Bb—Dm—C, the song is written in the key of G Dorian. The key signature is in D minor.[3]

Music video[edit]

Two music videos, both with elements of Northern soul dancing, have been released for "Love Me Again". One version[4] directed by Vaughan Arnell is based on the classic love story of Romeo and Juliet.[5] Another version features John Newman, backed by musicians, singing in a dimly lit room.[6] The woman in the video, Juliet, is British actress Margaux Billard. The Romeo, is British model Tommy-Lee Winkworth.

Critical reception[edit]
