Happy New Year everyone.
I have just released a new version of “Snow in Vegas” but with a slight twist, this time around it’s sung as a duet with LeAnn Rimes. Our collaboration sprang from a chance backstage meeting during my recent US tour. Ever since I recorded the song, I’ve had the feeling that it would work really well as a duet, so when I met LeAnn and the song came up in conversation, I mentioned it to her. To my astonishment she then called up the song on her phone, pressed play and sang along in perfect harmony; I was blown away. Fast forward a couple of months and here we are.
Over 120 vital research and conservation posts are about to be lost at Kew Gardens as a result of government cuts. It’s utterly short sighted nonsense and in my opinion it’s plain wrong. The natural world is under serious threat across the globe and wildlife crime is rife. The organisation at Kew is currently one of the few remaining bastions of scientific and policy expertise which is at least doing something to protect what’s left. Please click here for more information and sign and forward the various petitions/letters if you feel the same.
