Danny and I have been friends since 2016. Back in 2018, I was putting together a show for my favourite festival, Dark Mofo, in Tasmania (Australia), that involved Danny. Unfortunately, the show didn’t happen, but it eventually inspired Danny to write new music once the pandemic struck and Danny had time – a rarity for someone as busy as him. It started with a few songs. He would send them to me for feedback, and once it became evident this would turn into a record, he asked me to be his Creative Director. Over the course of 2.5 years, the project expanded and at the end, we had a double LP, twelve music videos, a sophisticated deluxe box set, and a remix album with contributions from artists like Iggy Pop, Trent Reznor, Ghostemane, and Blixa Bargeld (and many more).
