Sometimes I have this strong almost orgasmic sensation - I feel so inspired and I just have to keep writing new songs. I can't really focus on one track for more than a couple of days; I get too bored, too annoyed - so I usually start something new, something better, something that will, in three days, feel just as annoying. I love these streaks of inspiration, unfortunately they don't happen often enough.
Hoarse was one of those songs - It happened fast and I was into it. I knew that the organ sound was standing out - what a cool, bold sound, I thought for a day...
Back then, I worked as background on movie sets, just to make some extra cash, because my restaurant job was too slow plus I always preferred background work where you just sit and eat all day over running around and socializing with pathetic upscale restaurant patrons.
I was working on a material for my new album, when bored, sitting at background holding area, I opened my old laptop and started opening random projects that I never finished, projects I couldn't even remember.
And so I opened Hoarse. I immediately remembered how annoying that organ sound seemed to me just a few months ago, but this time, I kinda liked it! It was at least decent and it had this particular vibe. I knew that I had to update it big time though - change the beat, add a string quartet and eliminate most of the theremin - and so I did.
I started working immediately in between the takes and then again when I got home. The tracks was ready in a few days.
I had this melody in mind - it didn't seem extremely original but I went with it, even though it just seemed like an obvious choice.
I didn't have lyrics and so I was looking for something that would inspire me. No, I wasn't looking, I wasn't really trying that hard - I was too tired from working as background.
Then I got it. I wrote about my recent experience at this rave festival. I Wrote about my anxiety, my panic attacks, my self control. Fear of death. Constant self judgment and self pity. Self obsession. I felt guilt and pity because I felt such pity and guilt for myself. At this festival, I was surrounded by my friends and my family and their friends and stuff. They all let go, but poor me, I was too afraid to let go. I was just nobody, trying to be somebody cool on drugs. But instead I was terrified and disappointed that I don't feel comfortable, again. Like always. Bummer. Look at all these people tripping, dancing, f***ing. And I can't let go plus they make me really uncomfortable 'cause it's so phony.
I came home and felt frustrated. Had hoarse track going on and this was a perfect event to whine about (besides other aspects of my life - like working as background)
And that's how it all happened.

"He's such an integral part of our lives. Ariel's our brother, he's everything. And when he got diagnosed, all we thought about was, 'We're here to support you and we love you.' Nothing else mattered," Alana Haim said.
That's the real reason four years passed between the release of Haim's debut Days Are Gone and Something to Tell You," the group told NME. The feelings of helplessness and anxiety they experienced while Rechshaid was in the hospital impacted the songwriting for the new album. 'This record is full of emotion and everything we were going through at that point," Haim said. "You can hear it on the record how emotional we were. It was a very big deal." Read morehere.
The rapper released the official music video for his "Patty Cake" track on Friday (August 4) off his latest album, Painting Pictures, which arrived earlier this year.

In the video, Yachty and his girl visit and have fun around an amusement park as he promises her, "But we could be together forever/ But we could be together forever and ever/ I wanna live life with you forever and ever."

Over the rest of the clip, a shapely woman is depicted nude from the back and the rapper bounces around, fragments and multiplies as if he's in a kaleidoscope. "Chocolate" appears on Big Boi's latest album Boomiverse, which came out June 16.
