Yorkshire-born pop star John Newman is to return to Leeds College of Music to launch his new book.

The Come and Get It singer, who studied for a BTEC National Diploma in Pop Music at the College before going on to score three Number One singles and a platinum-selling album, will appear at the conservatoire on Tuesday October 20 to answer questions from students and fans on his book, Revolve: The Book.

Born and raised in Settle, North Yorkshire, Newman recently journeyed to Los Angeles and Miami to write and record his second album, Revolve, which is due out on Friday October 16.

His book documents the creative process behind the album and past hits such as Love Me Again, which achieved the Number One spot on iTunes in 33 countries.

Featuring exclusive photographs, hand written song lyrics and souvenirs from across the years, the book is a showcase of Newman’s life so far.

The singer said: “The main reason I have written this book is because I want people to know the process behind making my second album. I fight every day to show people what I see inside my head, my vision and what I want to create.”

Revolve: The Book is published by Quadrille on October 18. For tickets for the Q&A at Leeds College of Music visit http://po.st/LCMQA.
