“Buckley listened to Sam Lee’s ‘Old Wow’, produced by Bernard, during the downtime between rehearsals for his production of The National Theatre. Romeo and Juliet. Butler watched Jessie perform a song on an American talk show to promote 2018 wild roses. ”

Buckley added: “Right now, I feel like I’m never going to do another album again, because I can’t imagine another album turning out the way this one did. It’s amazing that it even only happened once. This weird, organic, fuzzy little thing just found us. ”
