It's not the most exciting interview, but those parts, with all the discussion about participation in the album I found interesting.
Making albums, I don’t find that stressful at all. I love it. I love watching a song grow from nothing, you know what I mean, to something beautiful. And then when people get hold of it, and they take it into their lives, for me, without sounding like a (jerk), it’s almost a miracle.
For me, no, because the guys that I work with (his band and producer-songwriters Greg Kurstin and Andrew Wyatt) know exactly what they’re doing. So they do all the hard bits and I just chip in at the end and take all the glory and that. I’m only joking, by the way. To be fair, I’ve never been one of them people in the studio that gets stressed out. We’re not curing cancer, man, and we’re not changing the world.
When I start writing songs my mind goes black. I get the guitar. I start playing a couple of chords, and the melody comes first. And then I sort go around with that and all of a sudden these words will come into me mind.
