With out art without communicating we wouldn’t live beyond 30 because we’d be so sad and depressed.
Music is amazing. There’s some metaphysical comfort where it allows you to be isolated and alone while telling you that you are not alone… truly the only cure for sadness is to share it with someone else.
I can see that if this was an album done 10 or 15 years ago we could see we were moving on to some place else.
Even in the beginning when we knew there was a legal argument about how much our song sounds like his song as one songwriter to another I wasn’t sure that Cat Stevens would take that as bad.
