Example's sophomore album "Won't Go Quietly" is one of this biggest success stories on the British pop scene this year. The album has reached gold status and has delivered multiple hit singles, including the album's anthemic title track and "Kickstarts." Not too shabby, Mr Example! The latest single to be pulled from the album is "Last Ones Standing," which received a gorgeous acoustic make over from crooner Ed Sheeran. Example and his label loved it so much that they decided to give it away for free right here, right now. Grab while it's hot. Listen to the original here.

Example Releases New Single "Watch The Sun Come Up"

It's not pop. It's not rap. It's something very fresh in between.

British rapper Example returns with "Watch The Sun Come Up," a track that is decidedly more gentle and pop-oriented than his previous work. With the exception of "So Many Roads" that includes a sweet Carpenters sample.

Example's raps are still laser sharp and his perceptive take on life is still intact. The difference however is that he has chosen the talents of pop superproducer Brian Rawlings to put together some of the melodies and beats on this new effort to create a catchy mash of pop, rap and a hint of electronica. (Rawlings is, of course, known for his work with Britney Spears and Mizz Kylie.)

"Watch The Sun Come Up" is a song about the ultimate summer romance. He says,"everyone has had a holiday romance, a holiday fling, one night stand - whatever you wanna call it. There's something about sunsets and beaches though that make you think you're in love - when you're probably not."
