Listen to a new Going Off Track podcast with Say Anything's Max Bemis about Hebrews, his rediscovery of organized religion, Jewish neurosis, and how his spiritual upbringing has shaped who he is today.
It is tough. I’ve learned to back away from social media and from looking at what people say.

I don’t look at it, because I really truly think that Jason Tate stirs things up. I get it, that’s his job, he makes money because people go to the website and he wants to stir things up. That’s fine.

At first, I scoffed, “Why would I want to listen to an album from a lame one-hit wonder band from the 90s?” She insisted, and I remember listening to “Losing a Whole Year,” for the first time. Driving in my 1991 Jeep Cherokee on a Texas highway, my entire musical world shifted. This was pop. Pure, unadulterated pop. But it was so much more.

I don't know, man. I hope I can get one of these songs out in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running. But I think most likely September. I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November? When Beyoncé was working on her last album, she took a while. I was thinking it could somehow come out in June, like Yeezus, and just kill it for the summer. But then I'm like, I have to work on Adidas and be with my child.
