Musician Keaton Henson is an interesting character. He's an illustrator-turned-musician from the UK and he owes his success to his popularity online. In 2010 he found a cult following with his digital only first album, "Dear..."

The fact that it was digital served him well, especially since he hates going outside, performing in front of people and doing interviews. But for a guy that's as personal as Henson is, his songs are very revealing.

Henson stopped by the Take Two studio to talk about his new album, "Birthdays," and what the song "You" means to him.
