NZ Singer-Songwriter MITCH JAMES Debuts New Single ‘Be Somebody’


Be Somebody is the latest offering from New Zealand-born and soon to be Sydney-based singer songwriter Mitch James – out now via Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

Be Somebody is a starkingly personal self-reflective song written by Mitch about the “realisation that you have become the type of person who you once despised”. It’s an introspective moment for James as much as it is sonically a step forward in his career. 

It’s been a challenging year for Mitch James, as for many artists, dealing with the highs and lows of the pandemic. Channelling his energy, frustrating and inspiration into new music, fans will not be disappointed with the latest offering from the authentic and emotionally in-tune storyteller.

It’s been a minute since fans last had music from Mitch James, following the 2020 release of ‘SUNDAY SESSIONS’ – a collection of previously released titles stripped back to their acoustic form, including Sunday Morning, Bright Blue Skies, 21 and All The Ways To Say Goodbye.

In just a couple of years, Mitch has notched up some impressive achievements including – amassing over 120 million streams across his catalogue, performing 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.


Listen to Be Somebody NOW + stay tuned for more to come from Mitch 2021.
