Shannon Noll: Loved working with Benji Madden!

16 September 2011

Shannon Noll says his current single was ''Benjified'' through working with Good Charlotte's Benji Madden.

The duo co-wrote the new single Switch Me On in Sydney in April and Noll believes it has a definite Benji sound.

Noll said he owes a lot to Madden's ex-fiancee Sophie Monk who introduced the Good Charlotte member to his music.

Despite having clocked up 10 consecutive top-10 ARIA chart singles in his eight-year career, the country boy remains dedicated to his family.

He said he runs all his new music by wife Rochelle and their children Cody, Blake and Sienna.

''I have demos in the car and I'll put on my music. My kids like Switch Me On ,'' Noll said.

''My daughter and I dance to that in the kitchen.''

The Condobolin-raised singer originally wrote 57 songs for his upcoming album A Million Suns, which has been at least two years in the making.

To coincide with the release of his fourth studio album on October 14, Noll will tour with a full band including a concert at Cessnock Supporters' Club on Saturday, October 15.
