"There are records that you just sink into. They coincide with what youâ€™re going through and become an ally. If our records do that for people, thatâ€™s the greatest compliment I could ever receive. Thatâ€™s one of the reasons making music is so important to me, because thereâ€™s a very strange emotional reach. For meâ€”more than books or movies or other thingsâ€”music is like a mainline to your heart."
