“I’d say I think I’m really proud of writing about something that I felt like it had a real immediacy to it,” he said. “Also, I’m proud of the playing on this record, which is stripped down, but still feels like it has great momentum and has a real feeling of people I love, like the Everly Brothers or the Louvin Brothers. It feels like it still has a bit of a simpleness to it. I’m really proud of that.”
