“We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval
life…As soon as we are born the return begins…we die in every moment. Because of this
many have cried out: the goal of life is death! But as soon as we are born we begin the
struggle to create, to compose, to turn matter into life; we are born in every moment.
Because of this many have cried out: the goal of ephemeral life is immortality! In the
temporary living organism these two streams collide: a) the ascent toward composition,
toward life, toward immortality; b) the descent toward decomposition, toward matter,

Life is a constant struggle: between pain and happiness, loss of direction and goals, futility
and hope. Writing this album has been a two-year journey full of lonely trips to London,
walks in the rain, grey train rides to the studio, broken relationships, repeated mistakes,
restless nights. But through it all, I was baring my soul and I was making art. It has been a
messy journey. But it has been beautiful. Because life is nothing but a Beautiful Mess.
Despite the lonely nights I spent eating French fries by myself in hotel rooms, I have had a
big team of wonderful people who helped me in this journey. A big THANK YOU to:
My producer Rupert Christie for sharing my vision and for making this project yours as much
as it is mine.

of cups of tea.
