Rising London, UK multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Sheldrake hit another milestone this week as his rising single “Come Along” hits #1 on Alt Nation’s Alt 18 Countdown and his first ever North American Tour sold out stops in New York City and Chicago in just an hour and Los Angeles and Toronto in less than a week. Tickets are still available for his San Francisco, CA show via www.cosmosheldrake.com and more tour dates are set to be announced soon.
Earlier this month, Sheldrake released the Deluxe edition of his debut album, The Much Much How How and I via Tardigrade Records/AWAL which features a full instrumental version of the album – listen here.
Sheldrake has seen budding international success over the last several months thanks to an ear-grabbing synch for Apple’s new iPhone XR ads with his song “Come Along.” The single quickly hit #1 on Spotify’s US Viral chart, #2 on the US Shazam Chart, plus made debuts on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs (#3) and Emerging Artist Charts (#23).
Sheldrake, who has always incorporated sound from the natural world into his work, helped stage a polyphonic musical intervention in London earlier this week in collaboration with Extinction Rebellion. Check out a recap here or below, the composition heard in the piece was composed by Sheldrake entirely out of endangered British birds and was streamed live on smart phones and portable speakers in four separate parts.
