Speaking to NME.COM about the album,
Black struck a cocky pose when asked about the guests that
joined the duo in the studio.
He said: “We made a list of people who we knew
wanted to be a part of this project. We circled the names with the most talent
and made some calls and guess what? We got every single one of them. They flock
to the D.”
During recording, Black said he
and singer/guitarist Kyle Gass kept their focus on the mid-day meal, rather than
the stresses of recording.
He joked: “John King [Dust
Brother] would be slaving away at the computer and we’d be trying to
figure out where we were going for lunch. It was fun to hang out with them. They
created a very good vibe. A lot of producing is about creating a comfortable good
vibe and that’s what you get with the Dust Brothers. There’s
probably some producers who are slave drivers and crack the whip and use the
intimidation factor but that’s not what we were looking for.”
Tenacious D have asked Spike Jonze to direct the video for
the album’s first single ‘Wonderboy’.
