We finally meet you in real life. How are you?
I’m feeling good. I just did some interviews and had my breakfast—shepherd’s pie, which is not very breakfasty.
It’s the return of the big festivals. Have you missed performing in front of so many people?
I definitely missed the crazy crowds, but I kind of have another experience of festivals because I can’t shower in these weird showers and can’t use weird restrooms everywhere. I definitely miss the comfort of concert venues, but overall, I would say I’m happy to be back at festivals.
Was it a big shift for you from being stuck at home to going on tour again?
Not really. I was making the record when everything with covid was happening. For some reason, it feels like it was the only thing I was doing at that time. Now, it’s different because someone just tells me I have to show up at the airport, and we’ll fly somewhere to play a show. Just take me wherever, and I’ll do whatever.
