Tiktok star: Nathan Evans: Number one in Germany is “crazy” – from all over the world


Glasgow (AP) – From postman to international chart topper:  The  Scottish singer Nathan Evans (26) has been number one in the German charts with his sea shanty “Wellerman” since Friday.

He can’t really grasp it yet: “It’s just crazy. I see how well the song is received in so many countries around the world. It’s overwhelming, ”said Evans of the German press agency.

 The  26-year-old worked as a postman until recently and has been posting cover songs on the Tiktok platform for over a year. Shortly after Christmas he published the New Zealand sea shanty there, which was called up millions of times within a short time and also recorded by celebrities such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Gary Barlow and Brian May. © www.de24.news

 The  German shanty rockers Santiano also sang the song.

“It’s all so new to me,” said Evans of his steep ascent. “All of a sudden I needed a manager, got a record deal and had to find a lawyer. I had absolutely no idea. But so far everything has gone well. ”

In December, the musician is going on tour in Great Britain, and a first album is also being planned. He wants to put the income from his first song in a house. “I would like to stay in my hometown or at least close by. Glasgow is 20 minutes away so maybe I’ll move there. But a house is definitely the next goal. ”
