Speaking of the new song, the singer said: “‘Amen’ is a song about being in an internal battle, whether that’s with yourself, something or someone else. In my case it was battling with my relationship and making decisions on what I actually wanted.

“I’m not a religious man, but we all believe and find our release in something! Be it family, friendship, freedom, football – Amen!!” Listen to the new single below.

Discussing the themes behind ‘Evering Road’, he added: “This album has been such a therapeutic experience, it has helped me through one of the toughest times of my life. Evering Road documents a transitional stage for me, where I felt I’ve learnt so much and grown into a new man, moving myself into a new calm and positive space.

“Gospel and soul have been a huge influence on me during this album, for me it’s so emotional yet uplifting, and I wanted to translate this DNA through my music. I’m just BUZZING for people to hear it, so hopefully it can be a lifeboat of sorts for at least one person.”
