Who knew at-home sessions tinkering away at the piano during lockdown would lead to David Campbell's new album, The Saturday Sessions

As the name suggests, the 11th studio album from the seasoned musician and Today Extra host is relatively pared back — and that's exactly how he wanted it.

"The rules were no big band, no swing stuff, no backing vocals, no [half-sister] Mahalia [Barnes]," he told co-host Belinda Russell as they chatted about his new album.

"It all had to sound really small and organic and I guess rootsy was the touchstone for this album, but all the songs had to be performed live, no charts. I was in uncharted waters, literally."

The Saturday Sessions is Campbell's most personal album yet as it mixes his love for pop, soul and rock as he interprets hits from his inspirations, including the Bee Gees, Smokey Robinson and Radiohead.

Speaking of personal, Russell also asks Campbell about his plans for Father's Day this weekend with his wife Lisa and their three kids: Leo, Billy and Betty. Apparently, if Campbell got his way, breakfast in bed would be off the menu.

"No, too messy. You don't want to be lying in crumbs," he laughed, before adding, "There hasn't been the perfect Father's Day yet, but it's perfect because they're there. And were so lucky. Lisa and I made incredible humans … and I think they are good people and I enjoy being around them. So if they're there, it's all good."
