Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale spoke in an interview with Bandit Rock radio station and explained her thoughts about songwriting process for musicians these days. She said:
“I think it’s a personal choice because I still love records and I still love hearing… if I love an artist, I want to hear what they do. I want to hear how they would put these songs together. I want to look at the artwork.
Because, we can attest to the fact that it’s hard, it’s hard work. Yes, it’s fun and thank whoever up there that we get to do what we love as a living now. But, it’s tough.
It’s hard work to put songs together and to deal with the politics of the business and to even write a great song, you have to write 60 terrible songs and then you have two that are like ‘They’ll do!’
So, I love thinking about all those things when I’m listening to a record. At the same time, yeah, it’s becoming more trendy to… instant gratification.”
Guitarist Joe Hottinger added:
“Maybe it’s better to keep putting out new things all the time.”
And Lzzy said:
“I would rather do that. Instead of waiting three years to do another record, let’s do another one next year. [Laughs]”
