Rory Graham begint als tiener met MC-en, waarbij hij de naam Rag N Bonez gebruikte. Daarvoor kreeg hij de inspiratie uit de Britse serie Steptoe And Son. Zijn vader spoorde hem aan om ook te gaan zingen, wat resulteerde in de EP Blues Town. Zo kwam hij in contact met Marc Crew, de producer die ook voor onder meer Bastille werkte. Met hem kwam de EP Wolves tot stand. In de zomer van 2016 breekt hij door met de single Human, dat door 538 wordt uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf. Dat gebeurt ook met de opvolger, Skin, die in januari 2017 verschijnt. Op 10 februari 2017 verschijnt zijn debuutalbum, Human. Van dat album wordt As You Are gekozen als derde single.

Na ruim anderhalf jaar afwezigheid keert Rag'N'Bone Man begin 2019 terug met Giant, een samenwerking met Calvin Harris.


Songtekst

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

Seconds from my heart
A bullet from the dark
Helpless I surrender
Shackled by your love
Holding me like this
With poison on your lips
Only when it's over
The silence hits so hard

Cause it was almost love
It was almost love
It was almost love
It was almost love

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

When I run out of air to breathe
It's your ghost I see
I'll be thinking about you
About you

It was almost love
it was almost ...

We bleed ourselves in vain
How tragic is this game
Turn around, I'm holding on to someone
But the love is gone
Carrying the load
With wings that feel like stone
Knowing that we nearly fell so far now
It's hard to tell

Yeah, we came so close
It was almost love
It was almost love
It was almost love

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

When I run out of air to breathe
It's your ghost I see
I'll be thinking about you
About you

While I reached out for your hand
When the walls were caving in
When I see you on the other side
We can try all over again

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

When I run out of air to breathe
It's your ghost I see
I'll be thinking about you
About you

Cause it was almost love
It was almost love
It was almost love
It was almost love
