I’ve been a bit quiet for a while – and this is because I’ve been tied up working on a project with a wonderful singer and writer – Fable. Ben Townsend (my co-conspirator in Man Kill Machine) and I are producing, and the three of us are writing together. It’s such a lovely, creative, flowing project to be involved in. We are very consciously putting ‘The Rules’ on the back-burner. It’s not a question of avoiding the commercial viewpoint, but certainly we’re not pandering to it… always a rather fruitless approach in my experience, because unless you rush things through, the world is a different place commercially than it was when you started. We shall be working on this for the next few months, and it’s a project I’m truly excited about – a record I feel lucky to be making.
