Howard Jones is a British musician, singer, and songwriter who played a key role in the synth-pop movement of the 1980s. He became known for hits like “What Is Love?”, “New Song”, “Things Can Only Get Better”, and today’s song choice.

In July 1985, he performed at Wembley Stadium as part of the Live Aid concert (singing his 1984 hit, “Hide and Seek”). In 2018, Howard Jones released his autobiography, titled, “Always Running”, where he reflects on his life and career in the music industry.
