Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

6. This Mortal CoilIt’ll End in Tears

This was the first time I’d heard Elizabeth Fraser’s voice, which led me to Cocteau Twins and everything else she’s done. I just thought the ‘Song To The Siren’ cover was phenomenal and the album totally changed how I wanted to be as a singer and how I thought about the way music interacts with the human voice.

I was going to ask you a bit about singing, and that interface of the voice and electronics. Some of your other choices might lead us down that path…

Yeah, it’s important – hold that thought.
