louder

[‘Cannonball’] was my lifeline to recovery. […] When Sia played me that song, we were sitting down to write 'Hey You’ and, I don’t know if I told you this story the last time probably because, you know, it was such a crazy time, but we were sitting down to write 'Hey You’  and the album was complete and she went to go into the bathroom and her laptop was open and her songs were just on loop, and 'Cannonball’ came on. By the time she walked out of the bathroom I was in full tears and I was like, 'I need this song.’ And I came home to my mother and my best friend Jonathan [Groff], who were living with me at the time, and I turned to them and was like, 'I’m gonna be okay, starting now.’ And I needed to learn to walk again, and this song helped me.

[Larry Flick: I liked Louder a lot - and I have a really close connection to that record that I’ll tell you about later - but I also felt like when we met for the first time, that you were stressed out […] and I had the feeling you didn’t enjoy promoting that record.] Well, I was given one week off of filming 22 episodes of one of the most difficult television shows in history to create. […] It was obviously also during a very personal time - here I am, just wanting to promote a record and talk about something I’m so passionate about, but also kind of still needing to protect my life and my privacy. So it was always this fine line with me of wanting to talk about the album and wanting to talk about the songs, but then also coming right out of a time where I was so exposed and really feeling the need to protect myself. I always wear a lot of hats and I’m okay with that, but at that time in particular, I had a book, I had Glee, I had an album and personal stuff. I give myself a ton of credit - I did it, but I learned from it and I took everything I learned from that experience and contributed it to this experience where I did not want to be filming at the same time; I did not want to release any other books or any other projects at the same time, and I also wanted to write songs I knew I could completely talk about openly. That’s something I learned from the first experience. I wrote these songs and I put these songs on the album, and then I was like, “OMG, I now have to talk about them?“ So I was sure with this record to write and create stuff I was totally comfortable discussing. [Larry Flick: I thought you handled it like a champ and I do have great fun memories of our experience together, but I remember you leaving the studio and looking around at my team thinking, ‘God, I wish she was having more fun because it was such a good record - and this one is even better. This record is way better, which is an accomplishment.]
