“I was so fired up I just rattled off the songs,” Fretwell said of the recording process.

The album title, Fretwell explained, was Carey’s idea: “Years ago, Dan asked why I always carried a copy of The Guardian, a notebook and a pen when all I did was go to the pub.

“I said: ‘If you go to the pub at 11am with a newspaper, a notebook and pen, you look like a busy guy rather than a pisshead’. It became a joke between us. The joke too is that I didn’t do any music for years.’”
