Example used Madonna's 'magic microphone' on new album

Example has spoken of his delight at recording vocals with a microphone once used by Madonna.

The Brit unleashed his new album 'Live Life Living' this week and he told the Daily Star that he recorded the tracks in Los Angeles.

He added that he used a microphone once used by Madonna, with the piece of "magic" equipment bringing out the best in his voice.

Example said: "I was recording on this microphone in LA and I was like, 'This mic is f***ing amazing'. When you hear the opening track on the album my voice has a sound quality that I've never been able to capture before.

"Stuart [Price, producer] said, 'Oh this is the mic we did the whole of the 'Confessions on the Dance Floor' album with. I've used famous microphones before like Sinatra's, but Madonna's mic was special. There's a certain mystique around it that you can't explain, because that album reignited her career, I don't think she's had the same success since. It must be the magic mic!"

Example meanwhile also gave his thoughts on how his album might fare in the charts, adding:

"The industry is going through a lot of changes and nobody seems to care about albums any more."
