New single 1989 comes with a hook built around iconic Mancunian band The Stone Roses and their iconic hit Fool's Gold - a Number 8 hit on the Official Singles Chart in the year...you guessed it...1989. 

1989 will blend the sounds of the new Manchester and the old, also coming with a very special music video filmed on the streets of Aitch's home city. 

Since his first entrance into the chart in 2019, Aitch has notched up 13 Top 40 singles (including an impressive seven Top 10s) plus two Top 10 EPs on the Official Albums Chart.
