Of the single, he says: “‘Carnival of Life was inspired by life and all its complexities, wonders and unpredictability.
“On one level it’s about how to make the best of what life throws at you, and on the other it tells a story about how life isn’t always what you want it to be.
“I wanted to create an existential, happy go lucky feel. I am singing to the world as well as myself, and people should relate to it in their own way, because I believe that life is what you make it, and what you want it to be. It is also about the need to move on, and I talk to my old self and welcome my new self to a world that’s changing.’
“The first line was actually a misheard line of a song that I liked, and that sparked the ideas of colour and carnival. The song then took on the form of a collection of thoughts about the spontaneity and unpredictability of life. The bizarre, unexpected and colourful aspects of a carnival are like a mirror of life.
