THE KNIFE’S SHORT FILM ‘THE INTERVIEW’: “MUSIC CAN BE SO MEANINGLESS”

the knifeThe Knife have released a short film ‘The Interview’, created with Marit Östberg, that explain their intentions and thought processes behind their astonishing new album ‘Shaking The Habitual’, released this week.

“We didn’t plan to make another album
We wanted to do something again but had to find a purpose
Music can be so meaningless
We had to find lust

Started to improvise
to find something less predictable
to let go of what we already knew about music
explore what we didn’t
without requiring complete answers

letting go
step in to oblivion
to forget expectations

by entering the work process with an open and inquiring mindset, the record turned in to something completely different than it would have been if the end goal had been a finished album all along

Once you stop caring about rules.”
