Bruno, you’ve just released a video accompaniment to ‘Cold Blood’, what made you choose this track as your next single?

The way I recorded and released my album, a song a month, meant every song had to be a single. It was only after I’ve had time to make videos. 'Cold Blood' felt like a video waiting to happen. It’s a story of getting lost in order to find my way.

We’re big fans of the video, who came up with the concept? And how was the filming process for you?

Louis Bhose the director came up with the original concept, and then we worked it out together. The filming was intense, I was in very little clothing all day in the freezing cold, gale force Peak District in November. We filmed it on 16mm and had to lug this gigantic film camera around muddy forests. The hot shower that night was even better than post-Glastonbury.

It’s the first of three videos you’ve made with director Louis Bhose, will they all be linked in terms of narrative?

They aren’t intentionally linked narratively but they are stylistically. Louis has a unique brand of irreverent, dark humour that he carries through most of his work.

You’re shortly heading back Stateside for a run of shows, are you excited to be visiting some new places whilst on the road?

So many of these places will be new to me. It’s so exciting, and I will be fulfilling a long-held dream of mine. The craziest thing is going somewhere I’ve never been and selling out a show there, finding a room full of people who want to listen. That’s special.

Many of these shows sold out super quickly, I imagine that must feel gratifying as an international artist?

It’s not just gratifying, it’s a relief! I genuinely had no idea if anyone would buy a ticket. To have sold out most of the venues is far beyond my expectations. I’m not taking it for granted.

Are you planning to try out any new tracks whilst on the road?

Yeah! There will be a few new ones for sure. It definitely helps to gauge a tracks strengths and weaknesses by playing it live. Also, it develops naturally by playing it a lot. It takes a while for me to learn exactly how I want to sing certain tracks.

Your debut album is called A Song For Every Moon, what drew you to such an astronomical title?

I recorded and released a song every month. A month isn’t an arbitrary time period, it’s the time it takes the moon to orbit the earth...I’ve always been a fan of astronomy so, it seemed apt. It was actually a working title but I got so used to it I couldn’t have anything else.

You also had a very interesting release schedule, putting out a track on every new moon in 2017. Where did that idea originate from?

The idea to release like I did actually came about because I made 'Wouldn’t Mean A Thing' and I loved it. Through my collaboration with Phairo, I had found my sound. I didn’t wanna wait around until I had a whole album to put it out, so I decided to put it up and then make another one the next month! I had watched a documentary about South Park, how they make an episode a week. I thought if they can do that I can easily make a song a month. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

You played a really intimate show last year at London’s Royal Observatory. How was that for you? It must have been a really special moment.

The observatory show was mad. We put it together with Spotify as a kind of celebration of the album. I had a giant dome above my head projecting the universe as people lay there listening to my set and an astronomer talking to the audience between songs. It was awesome.

You have a string of new UK dates coming up in April and May including your biggest London show so far, are you looking forward to taking the record all across the country?

A UK tour is long overdue, and I’m especially excited about playing in Ireland, which will be a first for me. The Village Underground show is going to be my biggest show so far. A year ago I sold 25 tickets to my London show, to go from that to selling out VU in a year is very cool.

You’ve had great support from Spotify since putting out your early tracks, and now Apple Music are working with you on this video trilogy. How have you found making and releasing in a fast-changing digital landscape?

5 years ago, you needed a record deal and radio play to have a chance at a career. In order to get those things you had to make music that suited the labels and the radio stations.

Now artists like me can make the music they want and put it out however they want, and people can find it through Spotify. You get more exposure through playlists than you do on the radio, and you get paid. It’s a better system for sure.

What are your biggest career goals for 2018? Will there be any more moon-related music coming?

2018 I will be touring heavily. We’re going all over the place, which is fine with me. At some point I’m going to record another album, I’ve already written the majority of it. I guess the goal is to enjoy it all and come it the other side with another album I’m proud of. 2016 and 2017 I worked so hard at A Song For Every Moon now is the time to enjoy playing it live.

It’s around the time of tips lists and ones to watch, which artist’s are you most excited about currently?

I love this guy Anomalie. He has a song 'Velours' that has been stuck in my head for weeks. There’s a girl called Eloise that I found on Instagram covering one of my songs, and I’ve asked her to come and support me on tour. She’s special. I like Rex Orange County too, he’s good. And Lewis Capaldi! I recently toured with him in the Netherlands. The guy's voice is nuts.

And finally, for those who haven’t heard your music before. In musical speed dating style, how would you describe your sound and show?

If D’Angelo, Chet Baker, Randy Newman and James Blake somehow spliced together their genes and made a child, maybe that child would sound a bit like I do.
