I played 'em to 'im, and I said, 'So, what do you wanna do?' He said, 'Well, just go down in the studio -- just go down and play it, just like you did to me.' So we did that, we did a take, and he said, 'That was great." So, I was going, 'Is that the best I could do?' So I came back up and I said, 'Well that little bit of the vocal is a bit wobbly. . . I'm sure I could sing that a bit better.' And he said, 'But it's, its you. It's vulnerable' and he said, 'It sounds really true to life.' And so we left it, that track called 'Early Days.'"
