Faith is your fifth album and comes out ten years after your debut Happiness. In what way is it different to release an album in 2020 compared to 2010?
It’s totally different. The whole music industry, the world, and we as people have changed. I think it’s amazing that we’ve been given the chance to get this far because we didn’t know how far our first album would take us. The fact that we’ve had all this support by our fans, meant that we could make this album, which is some of the best music we made I think.
It’s a difficult time to release an album with everything that’s going on, so it feels quite strange, but I’m glad we’re going ahead with it because I feel that people connect with it.
Did the evolution of music consumption have an impact on how you approached the album process?
It’s really hard to say because when we make albums, we just try to make the music we like or feel connected to. We do make pop music, so our influences automatically change over time, which doesn’t necessarily mean that we change because of how music is consumed now. We always believed that people have a better attention span than they get credit for. People do have time to listen to an album and do have the patience, so I think our new album will connect to people.
