Mr Hudson is "craving" noise and his next record may have a grunge feel.

The 'Supernova' hitmaker recently collaborated with hip-hop superstars Jay-Z and Kanye West but he has been pining for his guitar and can't wait to pick it up and start rocking out again.

He said: "I just want to get a bit noisy really, that's what I'm craving at the moment.

"Last year when we were touring, maybe onstage, I felt the guitar was like a barrier between me and the audience and I made a conscious effort to put it down for nearly the whole show, but I miss it.

"I want people to know that I'm a musician and that I miss it, and I've been going back to grunge records and I've been wanting to just pick up a guitar and strum."

However, Mr Hudson isn't about to drop his synth-based sound completely and people who go to see his forthcoming tour can expect some "dirty synths".

He added to BANG Showbiz: "I've also been listening to loads of dubstep and I want to bring in loads of horribly dirty synths that make the speakers sound like they're going to explode."

He has promised his UK tour will be "good value" as he has teamed up with upcoming star Tinie Tempah - who recently scored a British number one single with 'Pass Out'.

Mr Hudson said: "It should be nuts. We've got Tinie in support, we did well booking him. I think it will be a little bit like what happened with us touring with Calvin Harris last year.

"When 'Supernova' happened we would go on and have an absolutely crazy show, then he would just, like, demolish the building, so people were getting pretty good value for their ticket.

"And since we booked Tinie he's gone to number one, so if it doesn't sell out there's something wrong."

Mr Hudson uses the Nokia E72 to stay connected - and you can join in and have an exclusive twitter chat with him today from 12-1pm at: www.nokia.co.uk/e72inaction
