This Friday, Josh McClorey will release his second solo single 'Crazy', and it's not what you would expect a Josh McClorey track to sound like. Josh caught up with Paul for a chat about creating music in his shed in Cavan, and what he learned from working with Paul Weller.

After being based in a band for so long and writing music collectively, the former Strypes guitarist has found that when left to his own devices and being surrounded by computers, his music has taken on a different sound.

Josh also told Paul about how singing became a huge thing when writing his new music because for the first time he couldn't hide behind someone else's vocals or blend in. He said it feels more exposed to be the sole vocalist but he has started looking at it as an instrument.

Working with Paul Weller on his last three albums have taught Josh a lot too, he spoke about Weller's attitude to work and how when he's in the studio he never takes breaks and is involved in every aspect of the session.

You can look forward to two new singles from Josh this year, and he's hoping to have an EP released early next year.
