What inspired you to write this song?
“I’d class it as a love letter in a song for my girlfriend. She really supports me in everything I do and she’s been the inspiration for a couple of my previous songs, so this is my way of sort of saying thanks to her.”
What’s your favourite memory of writing and/or recording?
“How we managed to get through the recording and mixing stage of this one without killing each other I’ll never know. We have reworked it so many times I could fill an album just with different versions of it. We got so close to all agreeing it was finished and then I decided I wanted to record a load of vocal harmonies and ended up with an additional 50 tracks just of my extra vocals which I had to record wearing a stab proof vest. Once we finished that we ended up with 130 tracks. Altogether I think it sounds mega and I can’t wait to see and hear what everyone thinks to it once it’s released.”
What are you hoping to achieve with this release?
“Every time we release a song we seem to raise the bar a bit higher. I’m learning all of the time and having fun as well. I try to stay true to the people that have already connected to my previous stuff, but I’m always trying to push the boundaries. Hopefully people will like it.”
