I feel weird because I’ve been doing interviews for 20 years and this is the first time I’ve ever talked about stuff like politics. I would prefer that music was abstract rather than standing on a podium pointing a finger at what’s wrong with the world. I’m an example of someone who always said they would never get involved in politics. But then situations can become too much so that even someone like me has to stand up and say ’wait a minute.’ It reached a moment when I’d had enough.
