On wanting to release 30 sooner: “I wanted it to come out last year, obviously. And, when I drunkenly announced it at my best friend’s wedding on the stage. Expect my album in September, to a room full of people I don’t f–king know. But, I wouldn’t know I’d be announcing it to everyone that already pretty much knew anyway. Who the f–k did I think I was? It would’ve been done by then. I hadn’t done the orchestras yet. And, I hadn’t finalized all of my BVs and stuff like that. But, it would have, had the world not shut down. And, it’s such an integral piece to my life story over the last few years, that I wanted it to come out. Because, when it does come out, it’s the final door closing on that chapter of my life. So, it feels like it’s dragged out for me a little bit.”

On almost not releasing the album at all: “There were moments, when I was writing these songs, and even when I was mixing them and stuff like that, where I was like, “Maybe I don’t need to put this album out.’ Like maybe I should write another. Just because music is my therapy. I’m never going into the studio to be like, ‘Right, I need another hit.’ It’s not like that for me. When something is more powerful and overwhelming than me, I like to go to a studio because it’s normally a basement and there’s no f–king windows and no reception, so no one can get ahold of me. So I’m basically running away. And no one would’ve known I’d written that record. And it’s like maybe I just had to get it out of my system and stuff.”

On TikTok: “If everyone is making music for the TikTok, who’s making the music for my generation? Who’s making the music for my peers? I will do that job, gladly…the 30 and 40 year olds that are all committing to themselves and doing therapy, that’s my vibe.”
