"There are about 15 songs we recorded in Hong Kong," the singer, 46, told told NME. "The annoying thing is, if I'd been able to write the lyrics there and then about being there, we'd have finished the record.

"There was too much commuting between where we were staying and where we were recording and it was a bit too hot. "I think that's why we didn't get it finished."
