It’s a bit of a nostalgic album because all of the songs were written in the past. It’s like a photo album of what I’ve been thinking over the ten years before I recorded it. Sometimes you’re learning and sometimes you’ve learnt enough so that you can use it, which is what happened here. I became a grown-up. Well, not a grown-up, but I was in charge. It was a lot easier than being in The Sugarcubes. It was a very simple relationship between me and my songs.
