- Man, I just
opened my mouth and this came out...
- I never think
of my singing voice as that higher raspy voice, but
it's legit there. To give you an example, I sang this
song nearly 30 years ago for Burgundie:
- That little
boyband voice, what the fuck is that? I sounded
like that? I don't want to listen to that. When you
compare the two, it's, well, it's age. Age ain't bad,
it just is... and in this context? It's oh so needed.
Desperately needed. I am SO glad I don't
sound like that. I mean, I can do still the
breathy-voice stuff and enjoy some songs like that but
even my "breathy" voice has a fuckton more BALLS
- It honestly wasn't
until I sat down and sang this today that it hit me:
that's my voice now. That painful... been through some
SHIT, raspy angsty voice is now me. It's lines on my
face. It's not forced. It's pain just coming out even
if I ain't sad!
- And that's the
other thing - I'm writing this album but what do you
write about when you're fat and happy? When you're
content? Super happy with a new love - I can do
that... but contentment? Man, that's hard. LOL.
- Oh well. I'll
write what I write. That was the point of the project,
right? See what happens...
