"The lyrics I wrote for Flinke Namen were tough and show-off. With this album I want to show a different side of myself. I decided to be close to myself and to keep it in my own reality.
"Glen Faria taught himself to play the piano to a large extent. The piano plays an important role on the upcoming album. "The whole album started with just a piano tune. Most of the time I start playing something on my piano and it ends with a number. "The live show of Glen Faria is an fusion of all his different sides and backgrounds. Supported by stunning visuals, he tells his story to the public. Outspoken, honest and painfully recognizable, which is Glen Faria.
