The musician, a passionate supporter of Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace, tells today's Desert Island Discs that his work is incompatible with his principles.

& # 39; What I have always struggled with is that if I campaign for climate change, I am someone who has to fly for work & # 39 ;, the 50-year-old star tells Lauren Laverne.

& # 39; So boom, I'm a hypocrite. Yes, I fully agree that I am a hypocrite, but I am trying to do something about it.
