removing instruments

I was really spoiled rotten with the project I did before, "Vespertine." On that tour, I had, like, 50 people in the orchestra and 20 in the choir. I mean, how far can you go ? I just OD’d on instruments. Plus I started making my album three years ago when I was pregnant. I just couldn’t believe the miracle of the body. You say, I don’t need food, it’s right here in my breasts. You’re superwoman, but just for a little bit. That’s another reason it became a vocal album-it’s like celebrating the body.
