Mayer Hawthorne 

"So much Steely Dan in this album. My motto’s always been: ‘If you don’t like Steely Dan, I don’t like you.’ Steely Dan is a great divider among music fans. Either you love it or you don’t. I don’t know anyone who kind of likes Steely Dan. It’s very divisive. Fortunately everyone who I worked with on this record really appreciated it. I think even people who like Steely Dan as much as I do can admit that there’s nothing sexy about Steely Dan. And so basically what I tried to do on this album was to take Steely Dan and make it sexy.”
