The second you worry about other people’s expectations is the second you can expect failure. Not that we didn’t have big hopes for this album—we wanted our fans to love it more than anything. But put it this way: We don’t sit around second-guessing everything. If you do that, you’re bound to make sterile music, and that’s when you can expect failure.
