“The reason why it took me so much time is that I wanted to come with something that has not been done and I wanted to reinvent myself. One Love made me famous for that combination of urban and dance that was new at the time, but it’s been done so much. I really wanted to do something else and it was a little bit, like, a moment in my life and my career: What type of life do I want? Do I want to play it safe and apply my recipe and be like, “OK I’m at the top of my game”? And look at like a younger generation like [groans in a way that suggests the panic of losing his edge to newer artists coming up behind him]? I don’t want a life like this, you know?,” David told Rolling Stone. “When you’re a little bit at the top of the game, what is left except being afraid to go down? I never want to feel like this, so I thought that the best way to avoid it was to kind of start from scratch again. Until today I was always starting with the beat and then writing the song on it. This time I was starting with piano, voice and guitar, then producing around the song. I’ve really changed everything, like the way I was working, the people I was working with – everything. I’m really happy, because the result of this is that I’m here with you, doing the interview, and I’m excited.”
