I have to do this

If the world were to end tomorrow, there is only one thing I would want. I would want to make one more album.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to do that and it doesn’t look like I’d be able to at any time soon. At first it seemed like Xtra Mile would help, then it looked like Laura from Against Me was interested. Last but not least, Ryan Adams called me on the phone and we talked about what the world needed and what it didn’t need. It was one of the best days of my life. Like a lot of things, none of it worked out.

So here it is. All I have. They were supposed to be demos, and I hope you listen to these songs and imagine what they might have been if things had somehow gone a different course. I made them in my living room, unable to work or leave the country, with nothing else to do and with a compulsion to create…something.

Thank you for listening. It was really something.
