Craig David has said he did not expect to win a new generation of fans when he made his music comeback.
The singer has been enjoying a career revival in the last couple of years, more than a decade after his music first hit the airwaves.
Speaking at the NME awards, he told the Press Association he just wanted to make music that his core fans who have been there from day one would appreciate.
“But to have people who are like, have you heard of this new guy, Craig David, he’s got this album out – I never expected that.
“So I think that’s the major difference, but outside of that it’s all about making good music.
“Music always rides to the top.”
