Recorded at the beginning of 2020 – pre-Coronavirus – the guitarist discusses living in Brazil, his admiration for collaborator Laura Marling and respect for the authenticity of Ed Sheeran, Little Simz and Stormzy. Plus, which Radiohead album he thinks is "shit" and why nothing beats 4am in Shrangri-La at Glastonbury Festival.
