DW: Three of the songs were previously released as singles. We did some extra work on Carry Me Away though... Why not just include it as it originally was?
JM: Carry Me Away — and I can say this now — made my bones itch to have released as it was. I'm not too proud to say that I felt like before that song even came out, it didn't have enough of the rocket fuel a track needs to get somewhere in the world. And that was completely my fault. I remember being on tour and experimenting with the idea of making a song as a two week summer vacation project, which I did. And I had a blast, because I really caught a beautiful tune in the process, but it just wasn't fully fleshed out. When it came time to make this album, I knew I could take that extra time I needed to make it great, and listening to it now is a remarkable experience. My shoulders drop, I get totally into the music, and I go 'there it is.' Same song, but it comes to you where you sit now, instead of you leaning forward in your chair to find it. I always knew that song was in there, and now everyone can hear it.
