Sounds cliché, but for me it’s true,” thea says, having travelled to Italy as well as the USA during this time, inspiring some of the songs on the new album while also producing it alongside Andrew Keller. “I met so many people that I sort of carried with me – and so the songs in this album are small novels about different people that I’ve met, people I know, people I don’t know, and some stories from my own life.” – thea wang
