With his new EP “I Wish We Were Leaving” featuring Elton John out this week, he takes time out to tell MixRadio about the year ahead and why he has chosen the tracks in his ‘Artist Recommend Mix’, which is now available to listen to HERE.
“This year is about album two. It’s a great feeling having the second album ready to go, and being able to play new songs live and share them with people outside the studio! So there’s a lot of travel involved in this year, which is why making a mix of some of my favourite songs is such a nice exercise.
The mix I put together is a mix of moods for travel and time offstage on the road. Rhye’s ‘Open’ is the first song I listened to on my flight to NYC in March 2013 ready to spend a few months there recording my album, and ‘Home’ by Depeche Mode and ‘House’ by Kindness round off the theme of my trip – working out where I felt most at home, most inspired, and most balanced. What’s in-between is a little snapshot of my journey and some of the beautiful voices and landscapes that soundtracked a wonderful year in a city full of life and love – but not without its hardships!”
