"I think everybody felt they needed some time at the end of the last tour. It really had been five years of being away. If we weren't in the studio, we were on the road. And as much as momentum is your friend, there’s a moment where you stop getting fed by momentum and it starts to drain you. That’s because you need those moments of inactivity just to listen to music. We’re all enjoying that right now."
- The Edge, November 2021
