It is a darker record. There’s lots of violent imagery. Sometimes I’ll hear a drum pattern and it’ll sound to me like rolling hooves or clashing swords and all this Joan of Arc imagery starts cropping up. The music itself is quite tough and hard. I wanted something to echo that sound.
“To me, this album is almost like a battle cry. People thought I might be coming back with something more ethereal and twinkly; I wanted to come back with something tough and heavier."

“You don’t even know me,” I said. I grabbed the book from the center console. “How about I call you when I finish this?”
“But you don’t even have my phone number,” he said.
“I strongly suspect you wrote it in the book.”
He broke out into that goofy smile. “And you say we don’t know each other.”
