The album is out for a while now. How are you looking back at the journey? Was it a true rollercoaster?
Looking back, I feel like everything in my life always goes a bit like I expected, but the specific way towards it is always different. Making and releasing this album felt like I hoped it to be, but the whole album promotion plan was a trip that I’m just getting out of. It’s like I haven’t been able to fully retrospect just yet. Now, the promo storm is getting a little calmer, which means I’m currently going to the studio again with a slightly different approach. Everything is more open, there is no script or plan for what has to be made. I’m free to create anything.
Did the album fulfill your expectations? Do you feel like people understand what the album means?
Good question. I’m super happy with the numbers of the album. The tracks I predicted to do well filled in the expectations. However, you notice that only a small percentage of the audience actually listens to the whole project, which makes it difficult to get across the meaning behind the full album. Of course, that’s no surprise, since it’s an album with many guests. Fans of one particular artist on the project – for example Bhavi – that speak Spanish, won’t necessarily continue to listen to a French or Dutch song. But at the same time, there are plenty of people that listen to the album from start to finish. I appreciate every approach. I’m here to create and put out music that I love. People are free to enjoy that in their own way.
