It’s obviously not the right time for post-mortems at this point, as we haven’t even finished yet, but certainly a lot of the reason why the album has taken slightly longer is the nature in which we did it. We started with a new producer for our fourth studio album, so it was a big change.

What were the reasons for choosing Eno as opposed to any of the other people that were mentioned at one point — the Jimmy Iovines of this world and people like that?
