London-based singer-songwriter Cameron Bloomfield has unveiled the double release of new single ‘Wanted’ and new EP ‘The Morning After’, out nowvia Manchild Creations.
An introspective, soul-searching release,
‘The Morning After’ is underpinned
by self-reflection, with Bloomfield
reaching deep into his emotions. It is the official follow up to his debut EP ‘The Night Before’ released in 2017
which saw him garner support from notable titles like Clash, Spindle and 1883 Magazine.
A haunting, heartfelt snippet, opener ‘Intro’ sets the tone for the rest of
the EP. A downbeat slice of funk/soul
follows on lead single ‘Another Man’s
Woman’ which received the honour of a world premiere from the legendary Elton John on his ‘Rocket Hour’ radio show. Marking the second time he’s been

project for me, one that I have put a lot of myself into, and dealt with a lot

He continues: “It’s almost a case study of my relationship
with relationships up to this point. Whether they’re my relationships with
women, with music, with partying, with life in general my default position has

this as a mentality but ‘The Morning After’ is checking myself for a second,
realising the road and working out how to go on.”

personal turmoil, the song is an inspirational anthem about harnessing the
power we have to change the situations we find ourselves in.
