Singer reacts to topping NME poll
The frontman told NME.COM that he was giving himself a “mental high-five” over the result.
“It’s totally crazy!” he said. “Does it mean it’s a good musical decade or a bad musical decade? I’m such a bad judge of my own stuff. But I thought it was great when I heard. I’m pretty damn psyched with myself – mental high-five!”
Recalling the recording of the album, he said: “I know it took about 30 days. We wanted it to sound like we just walked into a room, recorded it and didn’t care, but there was always work behind it.
“We played shows a few months before recording and we played that exact setlist. We knew what worked, what was cool.”
