I've heard it reported that this is old footage, but honestly the whole not-speaking-to-each-other thing seems manufactured. I mean, if you wrote an album of smoldering love songs for your debut, changing it up for a second album forces the introduction of lyrical tension. What better way to demonstrate that tension than to dramatically reveal your album was made while neither songwriter was willing to speak to each other? Just looks like a publicity move to me.
Not to take away from the music, though, which is still just as good if not improved.
