Craig David has been living in an airport hotel and thinks his room is set up perfectly for him to make music
Craig David lives in an airport hotel.
The '7 Days' hitmaker checked into the Sofitel London Heathrow last September for a short-term stay away from his Miami home while promoting his comeback, but has repeatedly extended his visit after experiencing a career resurgence and insists his room at the establishment - which costs from around £135 to £1400 a night and is located next to the airport's terminal five - is the "perfect" place to record new music.
He said: "The thing is, as big a house as you could buy, it's perfect in there, it's got a bathroom, I've got my bedroom, I've got my little set-up with my studio and I'm getting as much done as I would if I was in some huge place with square footage and gardens."
The 35-year-old star enjoys meeting his fans and is happy to mingle with them before and after his gigs.
He told GQ magazine: "I went out to experience what Glastonbury is like because I didn't want to just be in the backstage.
"So I'm out there with my boots on, going through, doing my thing, and some people recognised me.
"There came a point where I had to go back because it was getting a bit of top because there were so many people and it started a ripple effect.
"I'll stay as long as I possibly can because generally I can't get enough of it, man.
"It's the first opportunity his time around that I can respond to people."
