"Hereís my new years resolution for 2015:
While working on my next album, I will sit down once a
week, write down my thoughts, turn them into a song and
share it with you directly. Think of these little songs as
postcards. Little greetings from me to you.
You see, I spend a lot of time on my songs, on their
details. I sweep the streets that my characters walk on
and polish every doorknob until I feel confident to let
other people in. But it does lead to a very isolated
And Iíve been longing to share my thoughts and life with
you a bit more. Iíve been longing to write about things
that make sense one particular day but that might make no
sense once the album comes out.
Then at the end of this year we can sit down you and me
and listen through these 52 songs, and remember where we
were and when we were there, who we kissed and who we
missed. Iím looking forward to that. "
