The first thing you should know about The New Pornographer's latest album is, it's the kind of record Carl Newman has never made before. One where he wouldn't change anything.
"Every song on this record, in the end, I thought 'This song is how it should be.' Whereas on other records there's always been a few songs where I think, 'Oh i wish I could change that.' But you let go. And on this record, I don't feel that way."
