Stay Positive

Album: Stay Positive (2008)
  • Frontman Craig Finn told Pitchfork Media that they named the album after this song as it's "something that's been kind of hanging around in my head a long time."
  • Finn discussed the album with Billboard magazine. He said that he was "influenced a lot about getting old. There's less party talk. I don't think anything is a radical departure, but there are things that I wanted to talk about. I was influenced a lot [by] getting old, and attempting to age gracefully. The idea is to not wake up washed up. You want to keep progressing, intellectually."
