He’s back, and it truly feels like he never left.

After the success of Following My Intuition, Craig David found himself touring the world with his TS5 DJ project. The experience opened him up to a younger audience, one which delved into his back catalog and discovered the multifaceted talents of the Southampton native. While all this was going on, Craig also found himself falling back in love with R&B, which lead him to create his latest album, The Time Is Now. It’s an album that shows even after years of a career, you can still have loads to share with the world.

Ken Grand-Pierre spoke to Craig about the resurgence of R&B, finding a place in the music world, cultivating a young and diverse fanbase, and collaborations.
