Someone asked me the other day, ‘so are you just done with music?’ It means more to me than anybody else in the world. Look I’ve only done two albums in ten years — that’s the way I really look at it. What does the next decade mean to me. I’m the one that sits and is obsessive about it before you even get to hear it. As close as I get to it, I don’t think I can physically torture myself that much, year in and year out, and expect it to fulfill me the way that it does and the way that it is right now. I don’t wanna put anything out that I don’t love. You just don’t get that every day. You have to wait for it.
