“It was going to be called Bones That Catch The Light,” says Ben Ottewell of his third solo album, “but when I mentioned that to friends they either sniggered like Beavis and Butthead or thought it was too wordy.” In the end this Chesterfield-born, Derbyshire-raised singer-songwriter opted for A Man Apart, a title with a pleasing ambiguity. “It could refer to my solo career away from Gomez, or to the crazy populist politics demagogues and thugs that seem to rule our world right now,” he explains. “Or it could simply refer to a broken man; someone who has fallen apart.”
