Long appreciates his label taking a chance on him as he carved out his unique sound on his album, Sultans.
Bobby Long admires fearless artists.
As a solo artist, Long pursues a sound that's all his own without imitating what's trendy, looking up to The Beatles for being "fearless" despite pressures from the music industry. The British singer-songwriter first gained a following after Robert Pattinson performed his song "Let Me Sign" on the film Twilight and after Long performed in a series of showcases in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville. He's spent the last nine years topping the iTunes charts, touring, and performing at high-profile festivals from Bonnaroo to Austin City Limits. Long says his label, Compass Records, took a risk on him with his latest album, Sultans, trusting his art direction and creative instinct.
Long sat down with Popdust's Brooke Johnson to discuss his upcoming album, his foray into publishing poetry, and how his baby boy accidentally ended up on one of his tracks.

With social media giants like Facebook and Instagram woven into our daily lives, does a boycott have real weight?
Kim Kardashian has nearly 190 million followers on Instagram, where she's in the habit of posting at least once a day.
If her followers were a nation, they would be the 8th most populous on the planet. But the citizens of Kardashia (Kimeroon? The United Kimdom?) will not be receiving any diplomatic news or thirst traps from their dear leader on Wednesday.
As she announced on Instagram on Tuesday, she is taking part in the one-day boycott of Instagram and Facebook organized by Stop Hate for Profit and promoted by other celebrities, from Katy Perry to Leonardo DiCaprio.
The model has accused photographer Jonathan Leder of sexually assaulting her in 2012.

Emily Ratajkowski isn't one to stay silent.
The model and actress, who's perhaps most widely recognized as "the girl from the 'Blurred Lines' music video," has used her platform over the past few years to engage in notable activism. She was spotted at Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles earlier this year and has been a loud advocate for women's rights, even serving as a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood.
