"I think it’s an opportunity to explore different versions of the band in a way. Because it's very much the early days, it's embryonic, it could go somewhere between Leonard Cohen or Johnny Cash – very stripped down and bare – towards something that is very lush. Very hard to say where it will end up or if it will all end up with the same tone across it, or if each song will be treated differently. I'm excited to see how the songs could exist in a different universe."
