Having seen his single Budapest going into the charts at Number Four on Sunday, George Ezra caps a good week by heading to Glastonbury this weekend (27-29 June). To find out more, we put five special questions to him.
WHO would play you in the film of your life? I think Morgan Freeman would be great. Purely so that when watching it back I could pretend to myself that my talking voice was as cool as his. Unfortunately, it’s not.
WHAT are you currently working on? At the moment I’m having a little bit of a break and deliberately allowing myself space from working on anything new. I want to concentrate and enjoy the release of my debut album and the touring that comes with it, before jumping to what happens next too quickly.
WHY do you do that thing you do? Writing and playing songs is something that I’ve loved doing since the day I started. It’s never been a chore, it’s always a hobby. To be able to do that from day to day makes me believe I’m a very lucky person.
WHERE do you see yourself in ten years? Hopefully somewhere nice. A little pub by the river maybe, with friends and maybe one of my friends will have a dog!
WHEN will there be a harvest for the world? Maybe when every man has been gathered and every woman too. When we can celebrate our lives and give thanks for the children. Or something.
