"I want to make another one, [because] I love making records," Drew says. "The whole process afterwards, the whole competition, it's a little daunting. But the reason you go in and press record is because you want to create something, you want to get something out of your system and work with certain people again. I very much know there will be way more music coming down the pipe from all of us."
That said, Drew could release something tomorrow if he felt like it. Around the time he recorded 'Spirit If,' he also recorded more material that has found a dedicated following among a very select group of fans -- the wives of his bandmates in Broken Social Scene.
"[They] like it more than 'Spirit If,'" he confesses. "Sometimes they ask 'Why didn't you put that out?'"
That said, it's not like Drew is on any specific timetable, and he's understandably cautious these days about overloading the public with his songs. "It gets confusing once things starts happening and you always feel like you're supposed to put stuff out," he admits. "There's about a box set between all of us of just making music for the sake of music, which is the most genuine reason in the first place."
"It's very easy to get music out there now," he adds. "More than ever, every song has been written about a gazillion times. You just have to make sure there's an originality coming from you and your crew of people to keep that spirit going."
