Why is everyone surprised? He said that he was going to be making a different kind of music than he did with Tides of Man. It's going to be a mix of stuff, I guess, with pop being one element. He said he was recording it with Matt Malpass, the same guy who's produced Lydia's records, and Leighton's side project, the Cinema. Solid song, solid production. Can't wait for his solo stuff. I'll listen to it regardless of what genre it is, because it's Tilian.
