For them to be listening to it and for them to be like ‘yo, Ghost made me feel this way and Invisible made me feel this way’, I’m like ‘okay’ (laughs); I just wasn’t expecting the reaction. But in the grand scheme of things, I’m just extremely grateful, I’m extremely excited about what’s to come and I’m extremely excited for the people who know me through this album as well to grow with me.”
