moving to New York

There’s no paparazzi. That kind of tabloid mentality - that people who make music are supposed to sacrifice their personal lives - you don’t find that here. I had people camping outside my house in London. I would go away for months at a time, and I’d arrive from the airport, go to my house, and half an hour later they’d be Paparazzi following me around. It’s a very English thing, a little bit in France too, but not here. PJ Harvey moved over here because of that. Same thing.
