“Literally in a week and a half’s time, we’ll have a finished album!” the British singer announced this week. “We wanted to do a record that allowed me to record and perform songs that I’ve always wanted to sing, but really didn’t have the opportunity to before as I was constantly writing new material. It’s given me the chance to be able to do more classic songs that I love from this amazing era”

“People don’t always realise that Motown was about songs that came purely off the Motown Records label, it wasn’t a genre or a style. They had so many amazing artists, from Marvin Gaye to Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and The Temptations… to be able to sing those songs as well as having new songs on the album that I’ve written too feels really good. Really looking forward to you all hearing it.”
