Here’s what he had to say…

On new music: “I’m working on an album now. There’s so much to say in these times that will give people hope and hopefully uplift people’s spirits. Because it’s a dark time in America. In the darkest of times I’m just trying to make something beautiful out of it…to be honest I think everyone in America is going a little bit crazy sitting at home all day. So I’ve gone a little bit crazy, and I wanted to take more steps outside of my comfort range and make music that I think—to me—is some of the best I’ve made.”

On quarantining in Utah (where drinking laws are strict): “We’re just getting hammered every day and doing funny s–t. I just drink in my house, and if I need a keg I go to Wyoming and bring it back. But don’t tell anybody [laughs]. It’s just interesting here. But it’s getting better every day because [the Utah government] realizes that the world is so f—ing crazy.”

On how lockdown affects him personally: “[I miss] the rush and the thrill of everyone calling out your name as you step onstage. But [I’m] able to be introspective and think about how [to] be a better person and help out more…and I probably say that every album cycle, but for me it feels so special. I want to make an album that will uplift and show that people are not alone in their times of loneliness and worry and that at the end of the day we all just need to show love to everyone on the planet and figure things out. So we’re working pretty hard, and I think we’re making some incredible stuff.”

On the first place he’s going when we’re allowed back out into the world: “I have a big-ass boat chartered in Greece. So the day this all ends I’m getting my ass right over there.”

He recently debuted a massive new tattoo in an unconventional place.
