Conrad Sewell, who caught everyone's attention with his vocal contribution to Kygo's "Firestone", has released an acoustic session for "Start Again" - the premiere of which you can watch right here. 

The London-born, Australia-raised singer-songwriter has toured with Kygo, Ed Sheeran, Jess Clynne and Maroon 5 - and managed to knock Taylor Swift off the No.1 spot in Australia with the studio version of the track. 

He was discovered by Lyor Cohen (Jay-Z's self proclaimed mentor acclaimed for signing Kanye West and Ja Rule). Take a listen to the Naked Noise session and let us know what you think.

Q&A with Conrad Sewell

What music are you listening to at the moment?

DVSN, Sam Henshaw, Troye Sivan, Anderson Paak, D'Angelo

Are you feeling much pressure following the massive success of Firestone?

I wouldn't say pressure, but I am definitely excited to put out more music. I just released my debut EP, and my single 'Remind Me' is out now, too.

What are you looking forward to for 2016?

Finishing my album.. and releasing it! Playing my own headline shows around the world. Hopefully some cool collaborations. 

What was the first gig you ever played, and what’s been the best so far?

First gig was at a charity event in Sydney. I sang a Prince song. 

Best gig I've ever done was probably a tie between Coachella and my first show opening for Ed Sheeran, in my home town of Brisbane, playing to 10k people I basically grew up with. 

Conrad Sewell's debut album is due for release later this year on Atlantic Records, and his EP is out now
