Adams has already shared two songs from ‘Big Colours’ so far – the Americana of ‘Doylestown Girl’ and the Johnny Marr-esque ‘Manchester’. Of the latter, the singer-songwriter said: “Manchester, the city and music of this mystical place shaped my entire life. It is at the heart of all the things I love about music from The Smiths, Joy Division, Oasis, New Order, Simply Red and The Stone Roses.”

Two more albums will also be released before the end of 2019. One will be titled ‘Wednesdays’, while details about the third are still under wraps.
