Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith discuss the ”painful process” that led to the album’s completion, including a series of covers and speed dating with young producers that resulted in a record that was abandoned before putting trust in their own partnership
The two then discuss some of the heavy themes on the LP, including how what was happening globally was to be represented in the songs; how tackling topical songs has changed since their early days; and Roland’s use of ghosts, demons, and the dead in his work. We also hear about the band’s upcoming tour with Garbage (get tickets here!) and their thoughts on making more albums in the future.
