Speaking about ‘I Should Go’, which you can hear below, McMorrow said that the first lyric of the song — “I never thought I’d ever need you around / It’s hard enough to be me only” — “pretty much sums up the energy”.
“It’s not about what we want, it’s about what we need,” he explained. “A lot of time I don’t think there’s a difference between those two things. But there is, a big one. I do not need a lot of the things I think I do, and there are other things that feel unimportant but are in fact the foundations that I exist on top of.
“I’ll genuinely never figure out which is which, I still obsess over dumb shit and I still take so much for granted. To say I’m getting more comfortable with my chaos is probably untrue, doubt I’ll ever be comfortable. But I do understand it a little more, and I think I embrace it a little more; embrace the chaos of it all.
McMorrow added that he “fucking adores this song. The second I put the guitar parts together I knew it was going to be something I adored.
“I sat in a room with Kenny and played him what I had and I think he immediately got it; I had this feeling going into the studio that day that he was the person who could take the idea and elevate it into the space I wanted it to be. I was definitely correct.”
