Damien Rice isn't the archetypal popstar. After a 8-year hiatus – an eternity for a mainstream artist – the Irishman is back with his new album My Favorite Faded Fantasy.
Recorded between Los Angeles and Iceland and produced by Rick Rubin, the drop marks his third release, following 2006's 9. In advance of its November release we caught up with the singer and his collaborators in Reykjavik, for an exclusive video interview with Best Fit.
We chatted to Rice about the period of creative apathy that followed his second record and how he was able to get back to a place where he was excited to make music again, and got some of his collaborators discuss their experiences of working with him.
My Favorite Faded Fantasy is available on iTunes.
