After years making chart-topping music that's earned him Ivor Novello awards and Brit nominations, David Gray thought it was time to take his sound in a new direction.
He has just released his tenth album called Mutineers and it is a break away from the style that most people would recognise him for.
Gray joined BBC Breakfast to talk about why he decided to take his music in a new direction.
