Anyone who remembers the retro days of the eighties will know Nik Kershaw very well. Throughout the decade he produced a string of infectious, radio-friendly hits that made him one of the biggest pop stars of his time. Wouldn’t It Be Good, I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me and The Riddle were his signature hits but he also helped other artists, penning number ones for fellow musicians including the Chesney Hawkes hit, The One and Only.
Nik Kershaw is back this month with his eighth studio album, the appropriately titled, Ei8ht, his first record of all new material since 2006’s You’ve Got To Laugh.
Nik’s profile made be stripped back these days in comparison to the singers hit-making hey day but the star is still as bright and talented as it has ever been. In the lead up to the release of Ei8ht we got to sit down with Nik in a London recording studio to talk about his latest comeback and highlights from his almost 30 years in music.
