"The new single `Paris, Tokyo`
“I love Paris, I love Tokyo… And what inspired me to write the song was that between `Food And Liquor` and this album we travelled EVERYWHERE`- multiple countries, multiple towns, multiple tours. So I just developed a knack and a love for touring, even if I didn`t want to do it! You know, despite the lyrical wear and tear it has on your body - particularly with the different climates - just by force I had to fall in love with it! And of course another side to it all is, when you travel, you leave people behind. So I actually wrote the song for my girl, `cause I`d be gone so much we`d go for two months at a time without seeing each other. So it`s basically her song. Just to let her know that, wherever I go, she comes with me - even if it is just mentally or in spirit.”"
