Back in March, it was revealed that Cardle had signed a joint deal with Syco and Sony Music’s more rock-friendly label, Columbia, with a view to turning him into a credible rock act. And it sounds like he’s making a jolly good go of it.

Cardle told BBC Newsbeat: “My inspiration is everything I’ve ever listened to; Michael Jackson, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Dave Matthews Band. There’s some anthemic stuff in there, there’s some very upbeat stuff, there’s some stripped back soulful stuff in there. It’s real”.

Did you hear that? It’s a real album. Not like those ones you buy and then find out are just a blank CD. I hate it when that happens. Said album is apparently due in September.
