AOL: What kind of inspirations did you have for the new sound that you have on this album?
R: Well, this album is a pop album. I grew up in the '80s and the '90s where pop music was still something interesting -- something that still had a personal expression. Pop music was so many different things and that's something that was very inspiring when making this album. I didn't feel like I had to conform of the concept of pop music. I felt like I can do it in my own way. I was also really inspired by things I started listening to later, like Neneh Cherry and Technotronics. I was inspired by the state of mind, of a teenager, when everything's very emotional and kind of black and white.
