So I think I kind of built the album up around that. I’ve almost been collecting songs for five years. If there were certain songs I felt wouldn’t fit on the record I was working on at the time I would put them to one side. The album is bookended by other lyricists, which is quite a brave thing to do. A number of reasons, really. One was that I was conscious of writing about the same things, which is easy to do when you’re writing an album. I was conscious of repeating myself. And I also thought the fact that it’s called ‘True Meanings’ meant it would be nice to hear someone else’s take on that, not just my own words. It’s more important that a studio works because that’s the only way you keep the soul or spirit in it – as opposed to it standing empty. I think whenever there is any kind of creativity going on it’s pretty infectious to everyone. That in itself inspires other creations, I think.
