James Morrison's International Hit 'Broken Strings' Made Its U.S. Debut This Week!

New York, NY. (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - Soulful UK star James Morrison's worldwide hit duet with Nelly Furtado, 'Broken Strings,' made its U.S. debut at radio this week as the No 1 most added song at Hot AC. Fourteen stations nationwide have added the song including WTMX in Chicago, KRSK in Portland, and KYKY in St. Louis,.

'Broken Strings,' a poignant ballad about a painful breakup, has become a major international success thanks to heavy worldwide radio airplay and almost 9 million views for the video on YouTube.

Here's what Morrison said about the session: 'It was an absolute pleasure to be in the studio with Nelly. She worked really hard to make the track great. She's a unique singer with a style all of her own and she can cover all bases. She was the first person I thought of when I wrote the song and she did a great job'.

Furtado adds, 'James Morrison and I had a awesome night in Toronto recording this track together. His voice is clearly better and more soulful than mine, as he has been mixed a lot louder on the finished song than my squeaky old voice. Maybe he can teach me a few vocal tricks next time we run into each other.'

Morrison will make his Coachella debut April 18 and plans are in the works for a headlining tour this spring in support of his sophomore album 'Songs For You, Truths For Me' (Interscope/ Polydor).
