S+ Stimulant: David Bowie

“Strangely, some songs you really don’t want to write.

I didn’t like writing ‘Heathen’. There was something so ominous and final about it. It was early in the morning, the sun was rising and through the windows I could see two deer grazing down below in the field.

In the distance a car was driving slowly past the reservoir and these words were just streaming out and there were tears running down my face. But I couldn’t stop, they just flew out.

It’s an odd feeling, like something else is guiding you, although forcing your hand is more like it.”
