With Darius Danesh’s second album due out shortly, is the singer feeling any nerves? “Honestly? Not at all,” Danesh tells ‘Scotland Today’ at the Braehead Shopping Centre near Glasgow on Tuesday (October 19). “I didn’t think I was going to be releasing the album this year so I’m just happy to be here. I thought that I was going to be taking time out to spend time with the family and so being here is really, it’s because of the encouragement of my father particularly who’s been ill this year and who’s been a huge inspiration for me. His battle against cancer has been something for me that I have expressed, I feel, on the album with ‘Twice’. I wouldn’t be here if he hadn’t said, ‘Darius, you’ve got to move on and keep going.’ And it drew focus for me on how important not worrying about your job is. Not worrying if it sells a lot, not worrying if it goes high up in the charts. I mean it really doesn’t matter.”
