An interview with Trent has appeared in German magazine Sonic Sound
in which he discusses the 5 track promo tape released to the media, the recording process, and the struggles he faced with his health that prevented him from finishing the album:
"It took a while until the disk was ready for release, although the actual production phase was the shortest I've ever needed. I simply needed time out to get a grip on myself as a person and to feel good in my own skin again, to get to know myself again. I worked hard, took this metamorphosis of mine seriously, until finally my head was clear enough again to write music. Besides, I didn't want to take the risk of failing by heading out too soon and possibly discovering that I am a lousy composer."
