“Well, A Different Corner didn’t do that great in America. It was a pretty uncommercial move – no chorus, lyrically bleak. I had to put it out then because it was so much a part of what I’d gone through.”
That’s vulturish. To write so specifically about what one woman’s done to you when you’re with someone else.

I allow myself to be that involved.”
