Hi Mikel, thanks for doing this and contributing so much to all our lives with this music. Since the beginning, I’ve thought your lyrics are the best in the music world. The word choices are always perfect. The new album is full of hits and I truly think The Common Touch is your best song. What I have been wondering recently is, do you write all the music and instrument parts to these songs? Do the lyrics come first? Would love to know more about that process. Obviously we don’t see you playing violin or drums, so wondering how you hear that/ create that ... because it’s always so perfect together with the lyrics and how these songs are crafted. I am constantly in awe. Thank you again.
