Speaking to the Post Chronicle, the pint-sized beau of supermodel Sophie Dahl said, "I'm a music consumer of the highest order, and I spend an awful lot of my time looking for music, buying music, downloading music legally and illegally.
"I make no bones about it - if there's some Thom Yorke EP floating around and it's not out until next week, then I'll download it illegally."
He then added: "However, the following week I'll buy it because I want the artwork, and I want to see the notes and to find out where it was recorded and all the rest."
Cullum ialso said he was painfully aware of the financial downside to illegal file-sharing. Sales of his own album 'The Pursuit' -- at least 60,000 -- are estimated to have been matched unit for unit by nefarious means.
He admitted, "The flip side of that is, four weeks before 'The Pursuit' came out, I was getting all these tweets from people who'd heard it because some of the CDs sent out to journalists had found their way online. I know the album has been illegally downloaded at least 60,000 times, which is as many as the record has actually sold."
