Multi-platinum British breakthrough singer-songwriter Nathan Evans shares the official video for latest single, “Told You So” via Polydor; the same single that Zoe Ball, OJ Borg and Sara Cox on BBC Radio 2 have championed since its inception. The official video opens with Nathan standing on the side of the road in Glen Coe hitchhiking across various idyllic locations across Scotland in a bid to get home. Nathan eventually reaches his hometown of Airdrie, assembling a cast of his genuine family and friends to whom he performs an intimate gig. The new video marks Evans’ arrival: a transition from TikTok to international pop-stardom and is available to watch [HERE].
To celebrate the release of the video, Nathan says: “Thank you, guys, so much on all the support so far with Told You So It has been so overwhelming but also absolutely amazing. Some of the locations in the new music video are beautiful. We spent nearly a full day down by Loch Lomond and a place called Arrochar, and the footage just looks amazing. Loch Lomond is always beautiful. We also went back to my roots and spent a good day filming in Airdrie to get a good sense of home in there too, it looks outstanding. I cannot wait for you all to see the new video! Personally, I love it and hope you all love it just as much as I do!”
The release of his new video for the single that went onto chart in the Top 10 of the Music Moves Europe Talent charts follows the global success of “Wellerman”, the biggest selling domestic single of 2021 in the UK so far and first Scottish artist to have a debut #1 since 2007.

About Nathan Evans
As breakout’s go, Nathan Evans’ is remarkable. Just six months ago, the 26-year-old was a Glasgow postman. Today, he’s a certified multi-platinum recording artist; the breakthrough British act behind the UK’s biggest selling domestic single of the year.
Now signed to Polydor / Interscope, his second single released 25 June – “Told You So” – a sure fire soundtrack to the summer, set to become his next unstoppable anthem as lockdown lifts.
Evans single-handedly captured the world’s attention with his masterful harmonies when he uploaded a traditional sea shanty to TikTok. Remixed by 220 KID & Billen Ted, it quickly became his debut single, Wellerman, which turned into an instant international sensation: topping the charts in ten countries while clocking up well over a staggering half a billion streams. Evans has “soared into the stratosphere”, said Rolling Stone.
“It’s like I’ve been standing in the middle of a tornado,” says Evans, “watching everything around me be thrown around. The last few months have been a dream, hearing my voice all over the globe.
Now Evans is in the studio, working on his debut album, and this summer he’ll play a series of festivals before embarking on a 21-date European tour.
“It’s been fun to ride the sea shanty wave, but I’ve spent years learning my craft as a musician. Now it’s time to share my own sound.”
