John Newman has promised fans his upcoming album will be the “most honest and important record” to date.

The singer-songwriter announced his return to making music a year after he was battling a second brain tumour.

In a post on Instagram he wrote: “I know it seems I have been away a while. I have taken the time to make sure I am well and to make sure what i make musically is the best I have made to date.

“This album will me most honest and important record I make (sic).”

He added: “I am currently preparing music to release as some of you may have heard in one of the many incredible live shows I have had this summer.

“Thank you for all still being so incredible and patient and I very much look forward to the journey we have ahead, together.”

Newman was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour in 2012, which was successfully removed.

However, the medics subsequently found a second tumour when Newman went for a routine MRI scan in 2015.
