Nathan Hartono has agreed to an interview on a rollercoaster. But does he really know what he’s in for? How about that one, we ask, as we peruse our surrounds at the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival and point to the scariest one. It’s a swinging, rotating tower that will get your insides churning quicker than dinner at a Bangkok roadside food stall. Yup, today's 8 DAYS cover shoot is not like the others.

We're feeling nice so we go for the next scariest option: the Viking. He gamely agrees, even as visitors begin streaming up to him to ask for selfies. “Yup, of course!” he chirps. Okay, you say one ah. And so we’re off. 

A version of this story appeared on Issue #1431. Pick up a copy of 8 DAYS magazine from newsstands to read the rest of the interview. 

Nathan's debut Mandarin single, ‘Electricity’, is available on all digital platforms. Watch the music video at
