Following the release of his sixth album, 85% Proof, last year the singer-songwriter changes into some comfortable trousers and talks Ian Wade through his 13 all-time favourite records


Emilíana Torrini - Me And Armini
It's a record she did with Dan Carey. I love this record because I first heard Emilíana when she did 'Easy' and it's a record [Love In The Time Of Science] she did with Eg White, and I adored it. And years later I worked with Eg, and he did a song for me called 'Leave Right Now'. I've always loved her music, and then I worked with Dan Carey. They had worked together before Me And Armini, but he produced the whole thing. I went on X Factor and gave albums to people who I was mentoring. Then I went to Iceland to shoot a video and about five people came up to me and were so sweet and saying thank you so much for mentioning her. I think it's her best record, because it's so punchy in its production, and it's no surprise it's been her most far-reaching record.
