    One of the United Kingdom's most revered and successful young singer-songwriters --James Morrison-- is going to come awake and alive on Oct. 11 with his new album The Awakening, which drops on that very date via Universal Republic. It's the talented Brit's third full length album and we highly suggest that you check it out!

    Here's some background info about this UK treasure. His first two albums, Undiscovered (2006) and Songs for You, Truths for Me (2008), both garnered widespread critical acclaim as they topped UK charts, selling a combined 4.5 million copies. "Broken Strings," his epic collaboration with Nelly Furtado was a smash success, skyrocketing to the top ten of numerous European charts. However, The Awakening is how Morrison will stake his claim in the States. Time to wake up, America!

    Morrison's new single is "I Won't Let You Go" is a hypnotic and harmonious ballad carried by his immense voice. He also recorded a duet with label mate, Jessie J entitled "Up." The track pairs two of the globe's hottest fresh talents for an unforgettable collaboration that's bound to get everyone talking. We love when two great tastes that aren't exactly similar pair up in a collab such as this.

    Check out the album sampler here! Get a taste! It's like musical caffeine that will wake you up ! Try before you buy! Go here! It's lively pop music, steered by Morrison's dreamy, blue-eyed soul voice. Ladies, prepare to fall in love with your favorite new male vocalist. His name is James Morrison and his voice will send tingles up your vertebrae!
