"I don't think that much anymore in terms of 'write a record, record a record, tour a record,' because in my own mind, things have changed, in that I'm just an ongoing artist. I'm not quite sure what the next project needs to be until it presents himself, and then I know. I just follow dutifully while I'm being led"

That gives me energy to want to make new things, and it forces me to hear things in new ways, which then can only help to say things in a new way"
