The music has definitive emotional resonances.

When you're making a song or an album, then you're telling your own story. It's hard. You start with a blank page, and you're like, "What do I write about?" You've got to come up with everything. It's about you at the end of the day. The story is already there with the movie though. I've got this great platform to build on and support. Gareth made an incredible film, and I was happy to play a supporting role.
