A proposito del singolo Evangeline, che è stato pubblicato come terzo IG, Jon Fratelli dice:
“I’ve always been a traditionalist when it comes to music so there’s something in what people call Country that has always appealed, to me it has potential to be constantly played with especially lyrically. I think at the time I wasn’t in a place of high energy so these lazier styles were something that I gravitated to quite naturally. I can’t think of any examples among the writers who i’ve always admired, Dylan, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Springsteen, where they haven’t also gone into these places musically, I think that speaks for itself, if you have a gut instinct and love for rock n roll then country feels like a completely natural companion”
E in merito all’album, racconta:
“Almost all of these songs were written on the piano, which is fairly obvious on first listen. It seemed like the most natural counterpoint to the last album: to move away from fairly loud and colourful songs – some of which were built from mash ups of various ideas – to something gentle that rolled with a bit more fluidity. I’d describe this album as playful as well, actually! Heartbreak and emotional pain can also be playful when you know that they’re not to be taken too seriously. Equally, you can’t know pleasure without its opposite. In that respect, black is equally as joyful as white. Life would be very dull if happiness was the only experience, wouldn’t it?”
