25 and Counting
Travis Persaud: Were there any
big surprises on the album for you?
Jim Cuddy: I think the song “All the Things We Left Behind” is a song that surprised me — we [knew we could] get a song out of it, but you’re not sure that it’s going to typify the whole record. Those are the enjoyable days
in the studio when you’re just trying things out. “Oh, let’s try the timpani. Oh, and let’s put in the bass pedals and another piano part.” The floodgates
just open up.
TP: Is the end result what you expected going in to the studio?
