Scottish TikTok star records Man Utd against Liverpool Sea Shanty
SEA Shanty TikTok star Nathan Evans recorded a special version of his song Wellerman for the FA Cup.
The viral singer has polished his maritime melody to focus on tomorrow’s clash between Man United and Liverpool.
The 26-year-old has become an online sensation after his centuries-old covers took social media by storm and inspired Gary Barlow, Ronan Keating and Andrew Lloyd Webber to get involved.
Nathan, who lives in Airdrie with his wife Holly, made his dream of being his own skipper in the music business come true after signing with the Polydor label and releasing his first song yesterday.
And he was recruited by the BBC to create a version of the fourth round hit at Old Trafford tomorrow night.
Cut with footage from past Cup clashes, Nathan sings the adapted lyrics, promising “drama, goals and fun”.
He sings: “Set sail on this story of rivalry, in Manchester across the Mersey. Intrepid, red and led by Jurgen, you will never walk alone.
“Soon the FA Cup will come, to bring us drama, purpose and fun. Then when the battle is won we will go to the next round.
“Lots of silver and history, 12 cup wins for Man U FC. To wear the crown, who goes back first? Oh pretty soon, we’ll find out.”
The northern giants face off tomorrow at 5 p.m. and both hope to defeat their fierce rivals and move closer to winning the famous trophy.
Nathan’s first track, Wellerman – and the Wellerman 220Kid & Killen Ted Remix – was released via Universal and is now available on all streaming platforms.
Last week, he told The Scottish Sun exclusively that he set his sights on chart success after sparking a worldwide craze for merchant melodies.
And the former postman appeared on Lorraine and revealed how he gets spotted during his day job.
Lorraine said that this song was her favorite that she had heard so far – and she even sang it live on air.
