Band member JJ Hamblett, Josh Cuthbert, Jaymi Hensley and George Shelley say they are excited to be working with some of the best songwriters around right now, including 'Taking Over Me' singer Andy from Lawson.

"Andy [Brown] is writing songs with us in mind," Josh revealed to the Daily Star this week. "That's brilliant, we really wanted a younger viewpoint.

"Obviously we're honoured that the likes of Steve Mac and Wayne Hector want to work with us as well," he added. "But it's good to have a mix.

Lawson have seen huge success over the past year with the release of their debut album 'Chapman Square' as well as hit singles like 'Standing In The Dark' and 'Learn To Love Again'.
