Craig David: 'I'm back in my lane again'

Now, ahead of his new album, The Time Is Now, the 36-year-old tells Newsbeat "I'm back in my lane again".

The music will be released in January 2018 and features collaborations with Bastille, JP Cooper and Kaytranada.

He's been reflecting on his musical memories and how he sees his career as a journey.

Craig was at number one last year, the first time since 2002, and he also played Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage this year.

So what's it like to be back at the top of his game?

The singer performed for the first time in PNG his freestyle deejay gig under the banner of TS5.

This is a concept based off his hosting nightclub parties where he mixed deejaying with freestyle singing.

A fairly new concept, it bridges the gap between performing songs, playing someone else’s tracks and free styling over that as well as playing instruments.

David also performed his hit songs including Walking Away, 7 Days and Fill Me In as he mixed deejaying with freestyle singing.
