Your Pop Alternative Source
You just released the box set, which meant a fair amount of revisiting your past.
I was kind of forced to look back, and I was kind of pleasantly surprised by what I heard. I thought the younger me made some reasonable musical decisions, there's a reasonable level of musical sophistication and harmonic knowledge displayed.
Were there any tracks in particular that stood out to you?
What we did was we remixed a lot of stuff. It's a bit like archaeology, we found little things that got buried in the mix, saxophone parts by Branford Marsalis. It's like digging up artifacts and dusting them off and making them shiny. So the record sounds kind of fresh and new, which is interesting.
