Taylor speaks about running into some trouble during the album recording process:

├óΓé¼┼ôWe actually had to take a break, and part of that break was not simply just going on vacation. It was being apart and asking what are the priorities for our band… Everytime you go do an album, you have to be saying ├óΓé¼╦£I├óΓé¼Γäóm genuinely excited about what we├óΓé¼Γäóre gonna create next.├óΓé¼Γäó When you├óΓé¼Γäóve been doing it for 20 years, you need to be sure you├óΓé¼Γäóre on the same page. All of that being said, I think this record is one of our most poignant records. It has a really strong sense of itself from the beginning through the end.├óΓé¼┬¥

Taylor dishes on the beauty of playing live music:

├óΓé¼┼ôIt├óΓé¼Γäós really not about whether you├óΓé¼Γäóre tired of this or you├óΓé¼Γäóre worn out or you├óΓé¼Γäóre beat up. Playing music is about connecting with people. It├óΓé¼Γäós about taking that moment and realizing that person could be there for the first time…to give people a moment to remember.├óΓé¼┬¥

Isaac talks about working with Darren Criss:

“Darren is an extremely talented musician. You never fully know until you sit down and meet people. Obviously, he’s made music for a long time, but then when you get the opportunity to fully interact with somebody, and Darren being most known for his acting and being in Glee, you’re going, ‘What is this interaction going to be like?’ And man, he’s great!”

Taylor, on working with Kat and Nikki for their Get The Girl Back video:

├óΓé¼┼ôWe met Kat Dennings and Nikki Reed both because they at different times during the last album reached out and said ├óΓé¼╦£Hey, I love your band.├óΓé¼Γäó The feeling was mutual…and we started having a friendship.

Zac, on Kim and Kanye’s baby name choices:

“Are they going North West? Are they going South East? Headed to North West to do some babysitting?”

HA! We’re swooning for these guyzzzz. Even if they are married!
