Jack Garratt insists he's wrote "eight years" worth of bad songs but believes it has improved his songwriting skills for the future

Jack Garratt wrote "eight years" worth of bad songs.

The 'Worry' hitmaker - who recently won the BRITs 2016 Critics' Choice Award - admits he has wrote his fair share of terrible songs but feels it has improved his skills now and into the future.

He told The Sunday Times' Culture magazine: "I was playing it safe - I was too in love with how I came across on stage, how my voice sounded, the guitar licks I played, to think about the songs I was writing. I was basically writing s**t.

"But every songwriter has to come from somewhere. And every songwriter writes a bad song. You have to, otherwise, how can you write a good one, if you've got nothing to compare it to? The problem is, I spent about eight years just writing bad ones. OK, I'm doing myself a disservice in support of this point but there's some truth in it."

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old singer previously revealed he is already planning on where to store his awards - in the bathroom so his guests can practice their own speeches in front of the mirror.

He told BANG Showbiz: "As it stands, I'm going to keep all of them in my bathroom at home in Chicago just because I want people to go in the bathroom and see all the awards and they can have an acceptance speech on their own in the bathroom."
