As such touring has been difficult and with the release of his last album, 2016’s I Still Do, there were rumours that he might be thinking of retiring. These were mainly fuelled by the album’s last song, a cover of jazz standard “I'll Be Seeing You".
“[Retirement is] one of those things that's been haunting me," the musician said at the time. "I love the song and I love the sentiment. Just in case I don't cut another record, this is how I feel. I kind of might be saying goodbye. But I've been doing that for a while.”
