John Newman's voice is a funny one. It's great, obviously, but at times I think it sounds awfully generic. That's not to say there are thousands out there who can sing like John Newman, there aren't. I just can't seem to get past the production on his songs to actually feel something. And I think he has a voice that should make me feel something. I don't feel nothing, I just feel like at the moment I'm much more invested in what's going on with his hair. Frosted tips and a perfect lick. What more could you ask for from a quiff? Maybe a few sparkles? No, it's perfectly great just the way it is.
Cheating is out on 6th October.
