How did the idea of the album come into the mind for John?
It was one of the last things expected by John to make an album. But since the pandemic went on and one-off projects kept cropping up this idea too came into existence. As shared by John.
All the tracks are very diverse and different from each other. Each of the tracks has been worked a lot upon. Every song is so diverse and it totally took John out of his comfort zone.
‘Cold Heart’ was a remake with Dua Lipa. The song really hit the charts well enough. It certainly made history. It was debut last week, the song has already made it on the Billboard Hot 100. This is John’s 68th entry in over 21 years. His last song which made it in Billboard was ‘Someday Out of the Blue’ which secured 99th position in the year 2000.
