As tenor Russell Watson prepares for a summer of concerts and gears up for a new record later in the year, we chat to him about good dry cleaners, avoiding the rain and where his career is at the moment.

A year on from the massive success of his Anthems album, Russell Watson is getting ready for a summer of outdoor concerts and, perhaps more importantly, his new album, due in November.

As he tells Classic FM's Jamie Crick in this revealing interview, the album itself is shaping up to be something quite special already: "I can't disclose too much, except to say that I'm going to be working with two of the most prolific writers on the planet for the next record."

"They're going to be writing brand new material for me, and it's very, very exciting."

Watson also found time to chat about the British weather, what breed of dog he most resembles (the clue is in his attire) and, after years of living life in the public eye how he feels about his career now.

Russell Watson performs live at Clumber Park on August 18th - you can buy tickets here.
