Chinese breakout star Anthony Neely releases “Sorry That I Loved You”

CPOP has been a relatively quiet industry as of late. With the exception of a few gems that have rose out of the ashes and long-time established artists, there’s been a lack of any new artists that have caught my attention. Well, I recently stumbled upon Chinese-American mixed singer Anthony Neely, and he has certainly piqued my interest!

As mentioned earlier, Anthony Neely (or 倪安東 in Chinese) is of both Chinese and Caucasian descent, giving him a unique look. Back in 2009, Anthony appeared on the Chinese television show One Million Star, performing a cover of Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter,” earning him a record breaking score on the show! HIM Records immediately made their move and took Anthony under their wing, training him in singing, fitness and additional Chinese language. Check out his cover below:

Now, a year later, Anthony is preparing to release his debut album, entitled Lesson One. In preparation for his album release, a music video for one of the tracks, “Sorry That I Loved You,” has been released. Check it out below:

This song is definitely a great start to his career. Anthony certainly has both unique vocals and looks, which will no doubt set him apart from other artists on the CPOP scene looking to make it big. The song itself has hints of Western indie influences and is just overflowing with emotion. I look forward to checking out his full album.

Anthony’s Lesson One album, which is now available for pre-order, will be released on November 26th.
