Sigala on choosing James Arthur for new single 'Lasting Lover'

Sigala has revealed that Lewis Capaldi handpicked James Arthur to sing on Sigala's new track 'Lasting Lover'.

He said: "The song came about last September when I was sent a demo from Lewis' team.

"We had to find somebody to sing it and it was cool, because he wanted to be involved in that process and help look for people to make the song the best it could be.

"We agreed that James was number one on that list."

And now the DJ has revealed that he would love all three of them to collaborate.

He said: "It would be great to get us all together. Maybe him and James can do a duet of the song."

Arthur insists there is "no beef" between him and Capaldi, after fans mistakenly speculated that he was feuding with the 'Someone You Loved' hitmaker. Speaking on Hits Radio Breakfast, he explained: "There's never been any beef. Me and Lewis have banter back and forth.

"There's no beef with me and Lewis, I've said a couple of things in jest like, 'I've taught him everything he knows' in an interview and people think it's me like having a dig, but it's just a bit of fun."

The track was released today on Friday (September 4), as Sigala's first post-lockdown single, and while many people have struggled being stuck inside during the pandemic, he's enjoyed the time at home.

As well as getting a dog called Rodney, the producer got to spend time with his girlfriend after "touring constantly" for more than half a decade, and he's also set to release a new album.

He explained: "I've been touring constantly for the past six years and haven't had a proper break, so I was welcoming the lockdown.

"It's been an opportunity to finish loads of stuff. I think a lot of people are going to be releasing lockdown albums so I will be among them, I'm sure at the end of the year or early next year."
