JH - Ha! Yeah, well...we’ll see about that.
KS - I was talking to Uli Fisseler, your tour manager, and he said that you’ll be working on a new album after the tour.
JH - We’re going to start working on a new album. Let’s put it this way. We want to do “Part 2,” and we were actually trying to make it happen for this album. But we’re not going to do a “Part 2” just to make it. It has to be a great song.
KS - Do you have a concept for the new album already? Have you started working on it?
JH - I think that there are some ideas, like basic ideas, really. A riff here, a riff there. For me, I have some ideas of what I want to use as topics for new lyrics. I just started writing. Even though it’s an idea that I have, I might not end up using it. That’s actually what happened with “Hermod’s, Part 2.” I had an idea that I wasn’t happy with, and it didn’t really work out with any of the other songs on the album, so it didn’t end up happening.
KS - You said that the lyrics are secondary to the music. Do you wait until the songs are finished before writing lyrics? How do you relate your lyrics to the music?
