New Interview on NPR

There’s a print version of the interview here, and an excerpt:

There’s a song called “Wasteland, Baby!”, which is kind of a funny love song to somebody imagining the world as it is now and then imagining the worst case scenario and trying to enjoy, trying to still find joy and still find something worthwhile in the absolute worst case scenarios.

“All the fear and the fire at the end of the world / Happens each time a boy falls in love with a girl / Happens grace, happens sweet / Happily, I’m unfazed here, too / Wasteland, baby, I’m in love with you / And I love to, that love soon might end / And be known in its aching, it’s shown in the shaking / Lately of my Wasteland, baby / be still, my indelible friend / You are unbreaking, though quaking, though crazy / That’s Wasteland, baby.”

It’s a folk song, it’s like a little folk ditty.

It looks like the Hozier train is leaving the station, at long last!
