"I am plainly shocked that the record has been number one in Europe this week, and I want to pause and thank all the people around the world that made that happen, and who have supported me with so much heart over the last few years, and come to my shows, and collected up all the press from around the world on the justonestar website, and wished me well, and shared some time with me at live shows. Thank you for urging me forward through a glorious dream, the likes of which is more your creation than mine. Antony x"
