“With The Last Ship I was writing songs for other characters than me, other sensibilities than mine, a different viewpoint and so all of that pent-up stuff, all of those crafts I'd developed as a songwriter, I was suddenly free to explore without much thinking, actually. It just kind of came out as a kind of Tourette's, a kind of projectile vomiting. It just came out, very quickly."
