It has been 25 years since the one-hit wonder White Town released the album that contained the hit, "Your Woman." The man behind White Town, Jyoti Mishra, breaks down how the song came together and why he wrote a song from a woman’s perspective. He discusses the bullying and racism he faced growing up in “white towns” in the UK after his family moved from India, his struggles with mental health, and the power of music in his life. He also explains how he pulled his single in the US when it was climbing the charts because he was not ready for the fame.
