“There’s sort of a line between engineering a song like it’s a piece of artwork you’re trying to make, versus making it a vomitus confessional. I’m just employing the same techniques anyone would use in meeting a new friend or something. There’s an element of withholding information, but it’s not malicious. It’s almost like maybe you can compare it to seducing somebody.”
