Bulletproof Picasso

Album: Bulletproof Picasso (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The title phrase finds Train likening themselves to Pablo Picasso. The Spanish artist had a long and successful career and Train have kept going for a couple of decades. Asked by Zoiks! Online where the name of the album came from, Pat Monahan replied: "It's actually the title of a song on the album. It's also, without knowing at the time, a way to describe Train - having dodged bullets all these years and still existing as artists."
  • The video was directed by Scantron Films and Mel Soria, the same team behind Train's "Angel in Blue Jeans" clip. Walking Dead's Emily Kinney stars as a waitress who is physically assaulted by a customer. Modern Family's Reid Ewing also features in the clip.
