's decision to tell fans he is gay has unleashed his creativity in the recording studio, according to his longterm collaborator Desmond Child. The "Livin' La Vida Loca" hitmaker 'came out' in March and has since felt able to express himself more freely in his material.

Child also reveals Martin's next album is set to impress: "We really reached a creative fusion of rock and pop and electronic and Latin music - it's all over the place in a really great way."
