In discussion with Melvyn Bragg for The South Bank Show at 8:00PM BST tonight (9th August, 2017) on Sky Arts.
Aliens discover themselves somewhere called the jungle, which sounds quite familiar to these times. One wonders if there’s a God out there who’ll help these aliens.
You can listen to ‘God Save The Jungle’ and pre-order the new album HERE.

Pre-order the new album, ‘I Tell A Fly’, and listen to ‘God Save The Jungle’ HERE.
‘I Tell A Fly’. In little words – it’s a story about two wandering flies finding fleet. I am neither a politician nor prophet but an artist who creates to only entertain is no better than a con. I hope this album fulfils its purpose as the continuation from ‘At Least For Now’. Thank you for your kindness, warmth, patience and unparalleled support. Ars brevis, vita longa.
I have carefully observed and come to the conclusion that my England is as much of a Jungle as Calais. I grew up in a Christian family but grew out of it due to some unforeseeable misfortunes. Yet, I still wonder if there’s a God out there to save us all. Or will we forever wander, till the road leads home.
Dear friends, I am excited to start The Wandering Tour. During the space of two years I wandered like everyone else looking for a safe haven, perhaps mine wasn’t for food but art and for that I am glad. Take care of yourselves and see you in the Wandering.
