Gino DePinto for AOL
Nathanson sat down with Spinner to chat about touring with Sugarland, leaving major label Universal and the inspiration for his new album.
"It's sort of like a bunch of short stories about folks that I know -- and myself. Right before I started writing for the record, I felt like everybody I know went into crisis. Either [they] were having affairs or were getting divorced ... there were all these sort of volatile things happening. So all the songs are sort of informed by that idea."
