    James Shotwell sat down to talk with Anthony Green over at Substream Magazine:


    He continues, “It was through trying to realize that similarity that I learned I was bipolar. And it was during the creation of that song when I was like, this song is about being okay with the fact that you’re paranoid. You know what I mean? Yeah, you’re paranoid, it’s okay, you have to fucking trust that it’s okay that you’re feeling this way because it all goes away. Even the good stuff. And so, it was intended to be a love song about a person and a romantic feeling, and it just ended up being almost a love song about being bipolar and that it’s okay. I wanted to call the record Bipolar Love Songs, but I’m thrilled I didn’t because it came out on the same day as that Kanye record where he makes a big deal out of it.”

    Reading more into this after the quote, I actually got upset at how Anthony describes his coming to terms with his own reality and learning to let go of who he was.

    I don't get how the world turns out ugly people and then somebody like this. Genuinely someone i'm happy to say I am a fan of since my youth. I will grow old admiring Anthony Green.
