He said: “One of the songs [I’m working on] that is most personal is about when I came out to my dad – that was a big personal one for me.”
“There have been a few of my friends that I’ve shown it to, and when I’ve said it’s about this they say ‘Oh my god I would never have guessed’.
That’s the strange thing with songwriters; they write a song and then listeners make their own interpretation.

A couple of my mates who now know the context behind it are quite taken back by it because it’s real. It’s about real stuff.”
