The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses have announced the first artist for the 2018 Newmarket Nights season, Grammy and BRIT award nominated and multi platinum-selling artist Craig David.
Having sold over 15 million albums, achieving 16 Top Ten hits and multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries, taking over festival stages around the world, selling out headline tours in seconds to securing a residency at the iconic Ibiza Rocks Hotel… it’s official, Craig David is back and in a big way! Initially rising to success with hit singles including ‘7 Days’, ‘Fill Me In’ and ‘Walking Away’, sixteen years later Craig was catapulted back into the charts and in to the nation’s hearts with Big Narstie on the gold certified single ‘When The Bassline Drops’, marking the beginning of his triumphant return. He has since released the number 1 album ‘Following My Intuition’, and will be followed by new album ‘The Time Is Now’, out January 2018 via Sony Records. The first track from his new album, ‘I Know You’, features alt-pop giants Bastille. Going from success to success, Craig also recently won his sixth MOBO Award of his career for Best R&B/Soul Act.
The announcement of Craig David follows The Vamps having been announced for the family-friendly Summer Saturday Live, headlining on 25th August 2018.
