The new song and title track of his latest album was inspired by his parents.
The song title just sounded like a good idea for what I wanted to say. I was told both of them were going to go last summer. Both my parents went into hospital at the same time, and I thought, ‘What would be an uplifting tribute to your parents?’ I like the idea of it not being a macabre send-off. They are my parents and I like the idea of them shining a light on the world.
Bryan co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran. The album is out now.
