I got up this morning and cycled into town after booking a room in my college.
I’m currently working on my new album and the process has been quite different to my previous works, particularly with lyric writing.
It occurred to me that most of the lyrics I wrote for my first solo album were written when I was travelling or when I was in a cafe.
Being robbed of the opportunity to experience both of late, writing lyrics has actually been a struggle and a slog.
But then, I changed my working space and environment. I also had the mic ready to lay down ideas there in the moment as opposed to writing it down and it worked a treat. As of today, I finally have a full set of lyrics for one of my new songs.
A new environment, a new approach are sometimes all that are needed for you to crack that thing you’ve been inhibited from creating.
