1. If I could collaborate with one other Latitude artist it would be…

I'd be curious what Damon Albarn and I would bring out in each other. We're both mercurial, so the result would be unpredictable. I love that Owiny Sigoma Band record from last year that he worked on.

2.     The thing I’m most looking forward to at Latitude is…

Making new friends.

3.     The worst lie I’ve ever told was…

“I know exactly what I'm doing.”

4.     My secret talent is….

Drawing cartoons.

5.     My life motto is…

Questions are preferred to answers.

6.     Dream dinner party guests would be…

My wife Jennifer & any of these people: Ira Glass, Jon Stewart, Ai Weiwei, Björk, Joaquin Phoenix, Hillary Clinton, Bob Dylan, Melissa McCarthy, Dave Chapelle, Salman Rushdie, Beyoncé, Thom Yorke, Johnny Greenwood, Arundhati Roy, Michelle and Barack, Aishwarya Rai, MF Doom.

7.     The book that changed my life was…

My parents' checkbook. Piano lessons are expensive.

8.     If there was a film about my life, my character would be played by…

Any small white dude would do.

9.     I’d like to get lost in the Faraway Forest with…

Someone with a trunk full of instruments and a map.

10.  What’s in your festival picnic hamper?

Earplugs, Bread-wine-cheese, sunblock, extra earplugs
