“And that’s really where this stuff came from – most of these songs have been sitting around for almost 20 years. I love the fact that people are so taken aback by it – that’s the best compliment I’ve heard about this album so far, that people are, like, ‘I didn’t know what to expect, but it was exactly what I needed.’ That fucking makes my life, man.”
