Rag’n’Bone Man, AKA Rory Graham, releases his new single Skin, out now on Best Laid Plans / Columbia Records. Taken from his debut album Human which was released on February 10 to mass critical acclaim, the album was immediately certified gold and swiftly certified platinum just 3 weeks later having spent 2 consecutive weeks at the number 1 spot in the UK charts.
The phenomenal success of Human has resonated around the globe on an equally outstanding scale, with the album surpassing an amazing 1 million sales worldwide and hitting the number 1 spot on iTunes in over 30 countries. A hugely successful recent trip to the US saw Rory make his second US TV performance (following a recent appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and play a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Rory also made his SXSW debut last week where he played a plethora of packed shows across Austin, Texas.
