Mr. Hudson

Mr Hudson is a multi-talented singer/songwriter from Birmingham, UK. Written in just two months in the spring of 2009 after a whirlwind of touring the UK, flights between London, Los Angeles, and Hawaii (where he worked with West on 808s and Heartbreaks), Hudson was in a weird headspace upon his return to his tiny flat in North London. 

'My room was full of guitars and keyboards, there wasn't even enough room for a bed,' says Hudson.
'So I got my landlord to sort out a mattress for me, and I'd put it up against the back wall, it was really good soundproofing. When I'd finished recording at like 3AM, I'd throw it down on the floor and jump in my sleeping bag. It was a very low point in my life'I'd thrown everything away. I'd moved out, I left my girl, I had nothing. So I had to make this album work.'
