Twitter Q&A session

what was the fastest you've ever written a song and the slowest

Fast: Gravity, You’re Gonna Live, Never on the Day… Slow: Assassin, Belief, Still Feel Like Your Man (that bridge was a PUZZLE)

Excerpted from May 2017 Twitter Q&A >
Interview from The Bobby Bones Show
The Bobby Bones Show: Episode #75

BB: What’s the difference? Why do you say “recording?" I just hear a song.

JM: The way it was engineered. It’s gorgeous. It’s the best—"Gravity" is the best record. You know it’s the difference between “song of the year," “record of the year” at the Grammy’s? Like, this is a quite a "record." Listen to how spare it is, if I stop talking. Well now I’m just going to keep going cause I’m so close.

BB: Now you’re going to post it.

JM: This is "Gravity," from Continuum. Check it out.

["Gravity" continues]

BB: When I went to your show in Minneapolis you didn’t play it, I was sad.

And I know you get that at every show cause you can’t play everything.

JM: No well you saw me at the beginning of this tour when I just played whatever I want. And the crowd was adamant that I play "Gravity." And you know, it’s cool to be that artist where, you know, there are things that people identify with you so much that you have to play them. I dig it.

And I’ll play "Gravity" every night for the rest of my life. That’s a song I’ll never get tired of.

BB: Really?

JM: Yeah, no, there’s something about it. It’s simple, but you can insert however you feel. And "Gravity" can be different every day. When you sing to it. It can be emotional gravity, it can be your time spent in space.

BB: Literal Gravity. The movie with George Clooney.
