"Simplicity. I’ve realized I like simple things in my life. That’s why I don’t tour with a band anymore. That’s not because of the people but because of the nature of having a band itself. It’s a fucking shitstorm of complications for an already complicated existence. Simplicity is Ethan’s style, and that’s easier to hear when there’s no band drowning it out. This was the first record that I recorded all by myself in a tiny little room and then Ethan added instruments on top of it. “- Laura Marling

“There’s a conditioning that that’s just what you do. I know it’s not the same for everybody, but that, to me, becomes like the conditioning back in childhood. You’re told when to sleep, you’re told what time to get up. You’re told to take a shower, when to take a shower. That stuff will rot your brain. I’m not surprised that so many musicians become drug addicts. What the fuck? If you stop exercising that part of your adult brain then obviously you’re not going to be able to cope when you get back into reality. I have combated that now by touring on my own, without a tour manager, without a guitar tech, and it allows me to remain in reality and to remain human. I think if I was touring with a band it wouldn’t be possible; but on my own it’s more than possible for me to do that. And that absolutely keeps me from being complacent because I am constantly on my toes, getting myself from one place to the other or setting up guitars. It’s nice to feel like I’m working, like there’s some labor to my love, because playing guitar and singing songs is my absolute pleasure but sometimes it’s nice to feel like it’s a job, too.” - Laura Marling
