The Flying Without Wings singer has been busy recording a solo album which will feature a soulful sound and will be highly autobiographical.

He said: "It's always more daunting to write and perform songs that are autobiographical. I tend to write more when I'm feeling down or when something bad happens as it can be the only way to express myself."

He added: "I'm really looking forward to sharing the new songs with the fans."

"But at the same time there's a real excitement that comes from working with some of the hottest up and coming talents."
