I was doing some YouTube covers, and I had a decently popular blog on Tumblr.
To be fair, I did come out of nowhere. 'Ghost' was the first song I ever did in a studio, my first time ever cutting a professional vocal.
It's really exciting to see all those people that exist in numbers online translate into tickets and then into faces, handshakes, pictures, stories.
The hardest thing about writing my second album is that I had 20 years to write my first album.
I wear my personality on my sleeve, for sure, and my look is constantly changing because so am I.
I would love to write a screenplay for 'Badlands' one day. I don't think I could ever have the patience to do it; I don't even have the patience to write songs. I write some of the shortest songs ever because I don't have the patience.
