Croydon singer-songwriter Ben Haenow has sang in bands since his mid teens. In 2006 he became the frontman for the rock and roll band the Lost Audio, which he formed with his brother, Alex. However, Haenow only really came to the public's attention when he won the eleventh series of the UK version of The X Factor.
Haenow released a cover of OneRepublic's "Something I Need" as his winner's single. Produced by One Direction songwriter John Ryan, it was made available for download immediately after his victory on December 14, 2014.
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
