the AM frontman tells NME that he’s forgotten how to write hit singles. That’s alright, he can still coin spectacular songs.
I have fucking forgotten how to do that… I don’t know what that is any more, it’s a different landscape these days.
He also says that singing doesn’t come to him naturally, and he has to work at it:
“I was never a singer. I have had to practice at that and writing melodies is something that didn’t come naturally. I was more comfortable writing lyrics. I am still working on it but I think we are getting there with the singing thing.”
