"The songs we wrote were so different from each other," Joseph says, "so Josh and I did our research on these producers and what their strengths are, what they bring to the table. And we even dated a few more. Once we had the list of songs we wanted on the record we could tell which songs would work best with which producer. All these guys added something to the record, and we were very intentional about what songs they were going to produce. It really kind of kept everyone on their toes, but it was a perfect marriage with all these guys, so I'm happy we went about it the way we did and we're really happy about how it turned out."
