WATCH: James Arthur Releases ‘Naked’ Music Video
James Arthur released the music video for his hit single “Naked” on Friday, featuring Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, actress Cressida Bonas.
The emotional ballad highlights Arthur’s newfound passion for gospel sounds. “It's like a hymn, that devotional aspect. The minute you hear those chords, you want to sing over them” he said in a statement.
"Gospel is something that's become really close to my heart, I absolutely love it now. I'm not a particularly religious person but that music – man, it's so powerful. Watching the George Michael documentary, it was such a strong reminder of how he brought gospel influences into pop, and how beautiful the results can be.”
The Brit pop singer first debuted the track on The X-Factor U.K. last weekend, and released the video coinciding with the wrap-up of his 11-date U.K. arena tour.
Arthur will also be returning to the studio this month to continue recording his third studio album, due out in 2018.
