"The idea of the album is that's it's going to be very DIY, very indicitive of the times we're in. I'm bascially going to be making it live, from scratch. I'm only really going to be using the tools that I have at my fingertips, the people I can reach online, the things I have in my house... to create my music, my artwork, my videos, everything.

"In some ways this will be my most collaborative project because I want to open up the entire process to all of you".
