James Arthur talks touring with OneRepublic

You may be seeing more of that when you hit the road with OneRepublic this summer!

Yeah! I’m beyond stoked for that, it’s going to be sick. I’ve never done a full band show in America and my first one is going to be supporting OneRepublic [Laughs]. We’ve done a lot of acoustic kind of stuff here, but I can’t wait to show people the whole production.

Ryan Tedder is one of the best in the world, in terms of singer-songwriters. I was told that they were fans of me and asked and I was like “Are you f–king kidding me?” It was a no-brainer. It’s weird about him saying that my voice is bonkers — I was fangirling over that for a good full week. Hopefully we’ll drag him on our tour bus while we’re there and get him to produce me a couple of songs.
