The announcer (Grammys 2014) said, “And the AOTY goes to Raaaandom Access Memory by Daft Punk.” Which sounds a lot like Red. For about two seconds, I thought we had it. But we didn’t. And I ended up going home thinking a lot about everything. Thinking about where I was going, what I’d been doing, how I felt like I needed to change something. I went to bed and I woke up at 4 in the morning and I knew what the next album needed to be. I’m gonna completely switch gears. It needs to be called 1989. Everything about this new phase and this new chapter has to be different.
