Andy Shauf reinterprets the love song on his new album Norm
He talks about his true-crime inspired album, quitting drinking and how that changed him as a writer
Andy Shauf is no stranger to a good love song; you can find them throughout his critically acclaimed catalogue, on albums like The Party and The Neon Skyline. But on Andy's latest record, Norm, something's different about the way he sings about love. What at first comes off as another set of tender love songs, later reveals a much more sinister side to his songwriting.
The musician tells Tom about how true crime inspired his new album, what draws him to the darker side of love, what sobriety has done for his life and his music, and why he wanted to write from the perspective of God.
