New single ‘Wrapped’ from John Metcalfe available to pre-order today 
A brand new track from John Metcalfe is the centre-piece of the Wrapped EP, available to pre-order digitally now. The four track Wrapped EP features the soulful voice of Rosie Doonan (Birdy, Peter Gabriel) on the title track.

Although largely known for his instrumental compositions, when Metcalfe met Rosie on a Peter Gabriel tour, he was unable to resist writing some material for her.

“I clearly remember the first time I heard Rosie sing,” explains John. “I was with some fairly hardened touring musicians who aren’t easily impressed and we went round the front to listen to Rosie sing a couple of songs before the main Gabriel show. We were all transfixed. I usually write instrumental music but this seemed like the time to change that and it seemed crazy not to collaborate with her.”

Pre-order Wrapped EP from iTunes now and receive a radio edit of the title track to download immediately. The track is also available to stream today too.

The news follows the announcement of John Metcalfe’s tour dates in May, where tracks from the album The Appearance of Colour, as well as Wrapped, will be performed.
