“So, there’s definitely going to be a whole lot of new music coming from me very soon and loads of guest tracks and stuff that I’ve teased on my social media over the past year, and stuff that I’ll continue to tease going forward.

Chis has spent a lot of time during lockdown working on his podcast, titled The Quad with Chris Young.
