This week, too, Nathan Evans continues on his way to success with the film “Wellerman”, and for the third time in a row he has topped the German official German single charts (GFK)! Overall, Scott has topped the chart four times in this country.
Nathan Evans is the first Scottish artist (Calvin Harris) since 2018 to top the German charts. “Wellerman” ranks seventh on the radio charts! The global phenomenon surrounding the hit “Wellerman” has reached the chart throne in other countries: the song has now reached number one in Great Britain! As well as in Norway, Austria and Switzerland. It is second in Ireland, Wellerman is third in the Netherlands, Sweden and Belgium, 12th in Finland and 58th in Canada.
It started in Tic Tac Toe
It all started with a singing postman on the Tic Tac Toe platform, interpreting the New Zealand whale ballad “Wellerman” and the viral trend began. After four weeks and a worldwide campaign, Scottish singer Nathan Evans has released his first single, “Wellerman” and “Wellerman 220 Kid & Killen Ted Remix”. Nathan Evans, currently with more than 1.2 million Tick Tock followers, is one of the 300 most listened to artists from Spotify around the world.
Plus, “Wellerman” has entered the game world, including its own “Sea of Thieves” video and Fortnight!
Pop stars are excited too
All it takes is a rhythmic tap on the guitar and a centuries-old melody on the Scottish Twang, and Sea Shanti quickly became a phenomenon. Because soon the whole of Tic Tac Toe formed a polyphonic Seaman choir.
Even greats like Andrew Lloyd Weber, Gary Barlow and Ronan Keating have contributed their versions, the tic-tac-toe duo Lisa and Lena have already danced to the remix, and Nathan Evans has recorded his own version of “Wellerman” for the Bundesliga. He recently joined Santiano, Europe’s most successful Shanti rock band, and released the first “Wellerman” duet! Nathan Evans has already announced the dates of his first tour to Great Britain for the fall and wants to present his Shanti hit live in Germany as soon as possible.
