However I can’t say that I’d have the profession I’ve now if it wasn’t for that [song]. And I do find it irresistible, so I simply received over myself. Six years in the past I went to see Damien Rice on the Palladium and he didn’t play Cannonball. And clearly, that’s his creative proper however I used to be like, ‘We’re all right here and you understand we would like that music!’ So I used to be like, ‘Have you learnt what? I’m going to play ‘The Energy Of Love’ and I’m going to f****** admire it.’”

Working with him once more this time felt like doing all of it once more – however as an grownup and with expertise and hindsight. I really feel actually excited as a result of I had such an incredible time recording it. It was most likely the most effective expertise making any sort of challenge I’ve ever had, primarily as a result of I used to be left to be an artist in a extremely conventional manner.”
