It’s been a minute since fans last had music from Mitch James, but he’s back with brand new single ‘Be Somebody’, a starkly personal and reflective song that showcases his authentic approach to hit song-writing.

In just a couple of years, Mitch has notched up some impressive achievements including – amassing over 120 million streams across his catalogue, performing multiple headline tours of New-Zealand, winning Best NZ Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards and opening for the likes of Ed Sheeran and SIX60.

The now 25-year old is ready to soar to new heights, with an invigorated passion for music and sense of self – he’s ready to get back to business, and what better way to do that than by touring with great mates Drax Project!
