Comments from James Rettig

The first two singles aren't really indicative of the album as a whole IMO. Those songs and "Any Party" are more like her older stuff, but the rest of it is on the softer side.

Nope, he said something to that effect pretty recently, but I get the sense it'd be more on the production side and less on the writing side of things? Who knows. They're probably being purposefully obtuse/haven't really figured it out yet/are following their muses...
