“Holistically [in songwriting], you’re trying to communicate a feeling and I think that’s a combination of everything. It’s like: ‘The lyric – is that right? The melody – is that right? The production – is that right? The context of it within the album – is that right?’ And when you do get all of those things and you feel like, ‘Okay, this song actually makes me feel the way that the situation felt,’ that’s a really, really satisfying feeling. I think that’s only happened to me a few times in my life and it happened quite a bit on this album.”
