Jimi talked to BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat about getting old, being beaten to number one by Lady Gaga and the industry’s ‘unreasonable expectations’ for new bands.

Doves’ Jimi Goodwin has condemned the speed at which the music industry promotes new music.

He added: “We were very lucky that we were allowed to do that.”
