You've mentioned that you've been working with Fernando Garibay last year and then more recently. How did that come about and what is the sound of these songs compared to the TPU EP?
The last song that you wrote for Smash, 'I'm Not Sorry', was lyrically and sonically completely different from anything we've ever heard from you. What was the process of writing that song and how do you feel about having a diva tune under your belt?
What/who is your guilty pleasure when it comes to Top 40 pop music? Have you been looking to that kind of music more for any inspiration as you have been experimenting and your music has evolved into a more pop sound?
Back in 2006, you did a performance on Craig Ferguson where your bassist played an upright, and when People And Things was released, you played a show backed by an entire orchestra. Do you have any plans to bring out some strings ever on tour or even in general for more shows, be it a single player or an entire orchestra?
