The singer recently joined the line-up of musicians who performed at ‘Platinum Party At The Palace’ for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, alongside Queen + Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, George Ezra and more.

Speaking to Rolling Stone UK ahead of this year’s Eurovision, Ryder explained how the UK’s approach to the international music event had changed.

“I think there’s been a huge shift in our method,” he said. “It would be mad to not look at the mechanics of that, how we’re finding artists and getting that person onto the stage. What does that situation look like? Because, let’s be honest, what have we got to lose?”

He also spoke about about becoming a TikTok sensation in the first UK lockdown, where he raked in millions of views for his covers of Justin Bieber and Alicia Keys.

“In lockdown, I didn’t want to overthink music,” he said. “No gimmicks, bells and whistles, no distractions and obstacles. I just wanted someone to scroll and they’d see this guy red in the face from singing his head off, singing straight into the speaker of his phone. It was as simple as that.”
