What I wished to do with this album was to interrupt out of my consolation
zone and problem myself to make music that felt prefer it might sit
alongside a few of my favourite traditional pop songs, while nonetheless feeling
recent and uniquely mine. I used to be impressed by so many artists on the brand new
file from Gwen Stefani to Madonna to Moloko to Blondie and Outkast,
to call just some. Due to the time that I’d spent on the highway
touring with my band I wished Future Nostalgia to have much more of a
reside aspect, however combined along with trendy digital manufacturing. My
sound has naturally matured a bit as I’ve grown up however I wished to
hold the identical pop sensibility as I had on the primary file. I bear in mind
that I used to be on my approach to a radio present in Las Vegas fascinated by the
course for this new file and I noticed that what I wished to
make was one thing that felt nostalgic however had one thing recent and
futuristic about it too.
