Calum Scott has released a new single about his experiences coming out.

The Britain's Got Talent contestant dropped the new personal balled 'No Matter What' which tells the story of how he came out to his friends and family who all told him they loved him "no matter what".

He said: "'No Matter What' is without question the most personal song I have ever written and the one I am most proud of.

"It's a song born from loneliness, acceptance and the heart-breaking but liberating tale of my coming out experience.

"What I love about this song is that it isn’t just limited to a story of sexual identity, but about the relationship between parent and child and acceptance as a whole.

"This song didn’t make my debut album because I simply wasn’t ready at that time to give it to the world.  It felt too personal to share, but as with all of my song-writing,  I've written this from the heart to try and inspire confidence and compassion in people and put some love back in to the world, which we could always use more of."

The new single will feature on the upcoming special edition of his debut album 'Only Human' which also features three more bonus tracks.

An official video for 'No Matter What' is scheduled to be released in upcoming weeks but for now listen to the moving song below:
