“I’m not the most introspective person in the world, but I am used to my internal musical landscape being unpeopled, and for a while there were lots of people camping out in there. It seemed kind of crowded. It wasn’t bad, it was just weird.
Now I’m kind of in a place where I feel free to do whatever comes up musically. There’s not as much focus on one bizarre event in my life, like the Oscars were. . . . So I’m just kind of floating along now, seeing what happens to float up next to me.”
