“I started playing ‘Head’ on piano when I went on tour with the Mountain Goats, and John Darnielle mentioned that he liked that song,” she says. “Since I was solo on that tour, and it’s more musically complex than some of my other songs, I decided to give it the piano treatment. It adds a somber quality I think the song needs to balance the lyrics. I’ve been playing piano my whole life and don’t feel like I’ve mastered it all, so it lends a bit more creativity to my whole process.”
The issue hits stands in late October.
