That’s quite unusual. A lot of people don’t take care over their lyrics like that.
I don’t think that’s true. A lot of people do. That’s a real – what’s the word? – a strength, a focus rather, of a lot of contemporary musicians. But you’re right. Some people focus more on sonics. Some people focus more on story. I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem. I guess everything in life is a math problem, but it can be more about an empirical route to getting the symmetry that you want, and this vibe, sonically. But storytelling’s a different thing. Like I said, it’s the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don’t know!
I don’t believe you. You just said you were in the studio.
Yeah, but I was working on another artist. I wasn’t working on me.
So Channel Orange could be your last album? This could be it?
It could be. It could be it, if I flew next week and my plane crashed! It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it. The idea of recognising your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me. I don’t ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing cos that’s just … that’s just telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that.
It’s topped our list, which suggests other people enjoy it too. It’d be a shame if you didn’t do another.
It wouldn’t be a shame.
It would be a shame.
I don’t know if it’d be a shame. I’m beginning to question the importance of art in this world these days. Like, I have this little theory that a lot of today’s geniuses don’t even go into the field of art any more. I did write a song recently, and the first line of the song was, “First off, fuck art.” That was the first line!
That’s a bit strong.
The way I approach this thing, when I started to get my head screwed on straight and really trying to make something of myself as an artist, when I was 19 or 20, it became more about function for me. Like, what is this song doing to you? What is the function of this type of artform? What is it doing?
For you as the writer, or for the listener?
I mean, I listen to my music too. I can’t usually stomach a project after I finish it, but for those days and weeks and months that it’s new to me, I do listen to it and it might change over time, but it’s about function. If I’m maybe saying something I want to say, or capture a feeling in a story, or illustrate a character that I have on my mind, anything – function first, thrill second.
Japan Airlines has announced plans to serve KFC (yes, Kentucky Fried Chicken) on its flights from Tokyo’s Narita Airport to eight destinations just in time for the holidays.
“Air Kentucky”, as the airline is calling it, will be served during the second meal on flights to the cities of New York, San Diego, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt and Paris. It will include a drumstick, chicken breast, “flat bread” (which we can assume is a biscuit?) and, of course, coleslaw.
The treats will be served from December 1 through February 28 in packaging that was made exclusively for the airline. KFC is wildly popular in Japan, so its fitting, really, that the airline is choosing to spread holiday cheer through food.
