On working with other artists and The Killers:
I’m lucky that I get to work with the artists I do. I was involved in the Adele’s latest project off and on for two years. I’ve been involved with U2, and I did some stuff with The Killers in the last six months, and Grace Mitchell, this new artist from Portland, Oregon, is kind of blowing my mind right now. I have a conversation going with The Chainsmokers about collaborating, so all these songs that I’ve done with these artists, they play a role. I did some stuff with Ed Sheeran for his next album that plays a role. If you’re in the room with him for three days… He reminded me that it’s lyrics above all – you can have a great melody, you can have a great song, but those lyrics have to hit you in the gut, they have to be the most real, human, visceral thing. To go from Ed to Brandon Flowers in the same week, you get two completely different apertures.
