Work commences on second album...

There's no one quite like Kindness.

An utterly unique pop talent, Adam Bainbridge has spent the two years following the release of debut album 'World, You Need A Change Of Mind' working on other projects.

Recruited as a guest vocalist by Dev Hynes for his Blood Orange endeavour, Bainbridge is now ready to return to his Kindness guise.

Speaking to Pitchfork, the songwriter explained that sessions in New York have involved spots from Kelela, Scandinavian pop star Robyn and a return from Dev Hynes.

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis - famed for their work with Janet Jackson in the 80s - have been recruited, while the overall sound is said to be a lot rawer than his debut.

"There’s a lot of first vocals and raw, imperfect takes... The mistakes and the humanness might be the most important part in music" he said. "(T)he other liberating thing for me is that while so many people in the music industry talk about 'radio songs', I came to a really happy realization that other people make fantastic radio music, so I don’t have to do that. Let Katy Perry make great radio songs."

Kindness is set to release his second album later this year.
