I definitely look back on that time with fond memories, even though I remember crying and being like I hate everything! at the time! (Laughs) But I recorded it in my room in Montreal and it was a really good way to work"According to Grimes, she wrote the album after spending nine days in isolation: "[After nine days] you have no stimulation, so your subconscious starts filling in the blanks", she said. "I started to feel like I was channelling spirits. I was convinced my music was a gift from God. It was like I knew exactly what to do next, as if my songs were already written."
