Following My Intuition by Craig David

Out 30th September (Speakerbox/Insanity)

As soon as he rose to fame with his huge-selling debut Born To Do It, Craig David earned respect as a talented singer-songwriter – but this soon became overshadowed by his cheesy image. Now, 16 years later, he isn’t trying so hard to be cool, and as a result seems much happier, something which is reflected in his music. Following My Intuition is his first new album in six years and once again it features his signature mix of slinky R&B (on tracks like ‘Got It Good’), pioneering garage (‘One More Time’) and dance-floor bangers (latest single ‘Ain’t Giving Up’). It shows off his voice on stripped-back ballad ‘All We Needed’ and his lyrical flair on the clever ‘Like A Fan’. There’s nostalgia too, with David referencing his first hit ‘Rewind’ on ‘When the Bassline Drops’ and reworking ‘Fill Me In’ on ‘16’. The album as a whole is much more fun than his last few offerings, with David taking himself much less seriously. The fact he’s now matured into his looks doesn’t do any harm either. All in all, this is one of the best comebacks in recent decades.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
