“People tell me that 'Mercury Falling' is a dark record, although I can't remember feeling that dark. I think you just explore different emotions at different times. I don't necessarily have to be in a bad state to remember how that feels, or in a blissful state to know how that feels. I have enough experience with both to draw on those memories."
