When Brent spoke to Vogue recently about putting together a project, he highlighted the most valuable aspect: “The writing.”. When it comes to lyrics, it is a different experience for me. From a literary perspective, it alludes to the moment when a song moves beyond just music. This is an extremely pertinent point that people often overlook. In a way, music can be regarded as a form of literature, but a song itself is a form of poetry too. When you look at a song from the standpoint of its writing and lyrics, it hits you in a different way.”
