Alphbeat singer Anders SG has revealed that he is heavily influenced by classical music.

The ‘Hole In My Heart’ singer said that he is particularly inspired by Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach, and wants to incorporate some organ music into his new material.

“These past six months I’ve been getting into classical music and been going out and seeing lots of classical concerts. I don’t know if you can call them gigs as such,” he told the Daily Record.

“In the past 20 years, pop songs have taken influences from classical music and it’s been sampled a lot as well.

“Music is really fascinating and it’s fun sometimes to work with something a bit different.

He continued: “I don’t think I’d release a classical album under a pseudonym but it’d be cool to use these things in my own environment. Maybe the next album will have some classical samples.”
