“The highlight is just getting another album out. The music industry’s changed a lot the last few years. I’m lucky that I’ve got a label who let me do my own thing and record the songs I want to record,” he says. “The thing that has always appealed to me in this genre is the stories. You can only write so many love songs – and that’s predominantly what pop music is in one form or another – I like that too, that’s cool. But I like being able to explore other things with the lyric in this genre.”
