Can’t stop the world.
Anyone who knows anything about me can tell you that I owe my love of music to one man, Gavin Rossdale. Were it not for his crypto-poetic lyrics and hauntingly emotive melodies in the late 90s, I don’t know who I would be; to this day, his Razorblade Suitcase album has had more of an impact on my life than any person, book, or film.
Gavin now has a solo record on the way, landing in some six weeks; called Wanderlust, it is the culmination of his most organic writing/recording attempts ever. He discusses the process, the new album, and more in a couple of recent interviews.

“I did a radio show this morning, and the radio host was like, ‘It seems so honest.’ But I was like, ‘Yeah, it wasn’t like I was lying before!’ It’s a context that I’ve seen forever. People come out with their next record and they’re like, ‘This is my most raw, compelling and honest record to date!’ I love that!”

“What I liked about WANDERLUST is that I had a lot of ground I wanted to return to that I had forsaken with the heavier, detuned style … I have tried to put my essence in every record I have made. This happens to be a different essence.”
