Yes, I prefer being alone because I’m so easily influenced. Every time someone I love, care for or respect comments on my work, I try to do it their way, not my own, even unconsciously. Plus, music is a kind of shelter to me. I love to work with other people, on collective projects, but concerning my music and my albums, I feel kind of fragile while creating. So, if I want to reach where I want to go, and I really know where I want to go, I need to be sort of alone in this path. When I reach the point that I wanted to reach, I invite people to work with me.
I’ve been working with a lot of people on this record musically. That was kind of new for me, and that didn’t change the music I wanted to do – maybe it changed it but maintaining my freedom. I mean, it’s not a matter of being in control no matter what; it’s just to manage to reach the creative point I wanted to reach. If there are some changes, let them happen but for good reasons.
