: "I supported Paul Weller back in 2007, and I think that was probably the first tour that I did. He was just really nice. He stayed in touch, and even came to a few of my shows. He said to my manager that if we ever needed a studio to record in we could use his. So this album was actually recorded in his personal studio. It was just incredible. It had all of his memorabilia and awards there. It was just so much more inspiring being somewhere like that which had all of these things on the wall."
