About this song

"I've been teasing you all with songs from my forthcoming 7th album, "Be More Kind", over the last month or two. Now it's time for the first 'single' proper, a song called "Blackout".This was one of the first tracks we finished in the studio in Texas, and it really pointed the way forward - it's the first song of mine you could get away with playing in a club, I think, and it's about trying to find connections with other people when the lights go out. Have a listen, I hope you all enjoy it."Read more on Last.fm.
