Ryder has been performing 'Somebody' across his various festival performances this summer and recently commented on the feedback he received about the song.

He wrote on Instagram: "This reaction to ‘Somebody’ over the festival season gets me every time 🤯💛🌞 Thank you to the fabulous legends who have sung their heads off with us, it’s been a year full of spectacular blessings and bonkers joy so THANK YA!"

Ryder initially rose to fame in May earlier this year when he was selected to be the UK's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest.

He ended up finishing second to the winners from Ukraine, becoming the best finishing British artist since 1998.

'Space Man' also became the highest charting Eurovision song since 1996 when it peaked at number two.

Since his Eurovision success, Ryder has performed at the Queen's Platinum Party at the Palace and at the British Grand Prix.

His debut album There's Nothing But Space, Man is set for release on 14 October and has been confirmed to feature collaborations with David Guetta, Sigala and Ukrainian rap group Kalush.
