“I had the good fortune of meeting her right when she was making [debut album ‘Stranger In The Alps’],” he explained. “I sang on that album and got really close to her.
“It’s hard to make a second record when your first is so well-received. I can relate to that pressure. Not that I have all the answers, but I can at least be a friend and give her advice. Sometimes she listens to me, sometimes she doesn’t – but that’s cool.”
Oberst continued: “She totally knocked it out of the park [with ‘Punisher’]. I don’t think there’s any limit to her talent. She’s just so fucking real and such a hard worker. People can’t really fuck with her. She’s gonna do her thing and it’s gonna be awesome to witness. I just love her so much.
He concluded: “There are very few people you meet in life that change you: I remember my life before I met her and after.”
New song ‘Mountain Crystals’ appears on Luminous Kid’s forthcoming debut album ‘At The End Of The Dream’, due out on April 23.
