Fender recorded the album in his hometown, once again teaming up with long-time collaborator, producer Bramwell Bronte.

It’s a celebration of life after hardship, and it’s a celebration of surviving.” The Brit Award winners debut album debuted at number 1 in the UK album chart, and took the musician on a world-wide tour.
