John Newman - The Things They Say: 3905057

"I can't write songs for the sake of it. I need them to be about something. After my success with Rudimental, I recovered from a brain tumour so I was feeling really happy. But then I split with my girlfriend and started writing songs anyone could identify with. I'll need something like that to slam me in the face again before I can write more." British soul star John Newman needs some drama for inspiration.
