I think I'm here to have fun and to learn, how to write songs and how to collaborate musically. This is an apology, of sorts. It’s difficult to write “issues” songs, without coming across as a hectoring, naïve school student. The thing is, I am deeply naïve about the situation in Syria: I find myself avoiding news because it is so horrifying, yet when the stories about Kardashian diamonds and Brangelina d.i.v.o.r.c.e. began smothering the news of the bombing of the last functioning hospital in Eastern Aleppo, I decided I’d had enough. I wrote a hectoring song about it. Please take it as an ill-informed comment on news management and the media, rather than an assessment of the Syrian situation, about which I truly know nothing.
