In June, group member Josh Dun sat down with Apple Music to discuss the inspiration for the new album and how the group went about choosing their singles. “We’ve had extensive conversations on all our songs and where they are, and what order to have people listen to things,” he said. “We kind of agreed for ‘Jumpsuit’ and ‘Nico,’ that these two really kind of were a nice bridge coming from where things left off with the last album, Blurryface.”
“I feel like having something that really connected the two albums together and really felt like a natural progression from where it was at before just made sense,” Dun added. “Not to say that the rest of the album sounds way different, but that one I think to us, really felt like it was the most connecting. I think within this one, there is a place from which to write, and I think it’s looming out a little bit from that character, and still learning about that character, but a little bit more into the story, if that makes sense.”
In a separate interview with Zane Lowe and Beats 1 Radio, Tyler Joseph added that spirituality was a huge aspect of the new album. “My faith is constantly playing a part in the music that I write,” he said. “What I believe about God and my faith is … very different from [my parents]. But I think it’s a lesson in knowing that what I believe is different from everyone.”
Joseph also spoke on the influence that other musicians have had on the group. “We see all these other bands around us,” he explained. “We’re trying to [see], should we do what they’re doing? Should we kind of try to follow their lead? And we decided, you know what, let’s just go underground. And we went underground.” Check out the full interview with Lowe above.
