Listening and Reading

This album features my favorite era of songwriting, done by some of the best musicians working today. Danger Mouse is such a wonderful musician, producer, and visionary. The high romance of these old songs made such an impression on me as a kid listening to oldies radio stations, driving across the US with my parents... I felt like I could hear a secret world calling me home. I knew I wanted to sing songs like these. These new arrangements feel so right for the material...

As for this book, it gives me another thing I crave: it re-frames the big questions of our time in a form invented with purpose by its author, Alvaro Enrigue.
