The 'Eenie Meenie' songwriter chatted away about his dreary acoustic album (quoted here), saying: ''It's just good music. It just shows that I wasn't made, I was found on YouTube and it shows people music is music. That's what you need to focus on — listening to the music. I'm an artist. I'm not — I'm a singer and I want to show people what I love to do.''
That last sentence doesn't really make sense, but go on.
"I wanted to basically strip it down so it's just me and an acoustic guitar. Some of it is me and a piano but most of it is just raw me. I think the fans really like it because it's just kind of how I started. I started with just me on the internet. Not really with all the produced pop music and so it's just that it's just really mellowed down and I feel like it's made for all ages.''
