Thursday 14th October 2010

It's been a phenomenal year for Example, with a certified silver selling album ‘Won’t Go Quietly’, killer festival performances both in the UK and Europe, a sell-out UK tour, 350K sales of this year’s summer anthems ‘Kickstarts’ and a support for the Faithless tour, Example is well and truly on a roll.  And he continues his relentless onslaught on the UK charts with new single ‘Two Lives’ released through Ministry of Sound Recordings on 14th November.

‘Two Lives’ is yet another epic moment from the ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ LP and tracks like ‘Kickstarts’ shows Example cannot not only write a love song with the best of them (self declared inspirations for this tune being Chris Martin and Kanye West) - but also deliver a signature killer chorus every time. Produced by upcoming golden boy ISHI (Tinie Tempah) ‘Two Lives’ and its sweeping guitars and piano led intro is a more heart felt track; the lyrics show sincerity and glimpses of a more mature musical direction. ‘Two Lives’ is yet another Example triumph ready to follow in the footsteps of previous smashes ‘Watch the Sun Come Up’, ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ and ‘Kickstarts’.

Example is currently on his headline UK tour selling over 25K tickets nationwide over 17 dates.  His new live set also hits the road with Faithless kicking off in Bournemouth on 30th November climaxing at London’s O2 Arena on 11th December.
With support from a roll call of Radio 1 DJs of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Judge Jules, Annie Mac and Mistajam, and massive daytime love from Fearne Cotton, Greg James, and a shout out from Chris Moyles for his very special recent live lounge performance,  Example is definitely one of the hottest acts to impact the charts this year.  

‘Two Lives’ is released with Data on 14th November with remixes from Wez Clarke, Kris Menace, Loadsta, Tek-One and Ian Archer. They will all be available to download shortly!
