“There was no mission for this album other than to follow the songs, and in terms of songwriting, the floodgates really opened this time," Chris Isaak explains. "My last release was Beyond The Sun -- my tribute to Sun Records with a lot of covers -- so this time around I had a lot of new material that I was thrilled to record."
