Most of the songs of the last three albums [Old Ideas, Popular Problems, You Want It Darker] were songs that I’ve been working on for many years. Their placement in one album or another depended on when I was able to complete them. You Want It Darker does not stand in deliberate contrast to Almost Like The Blues. These themes have been kicking around for quite a while. They just came together at different times.quotedown2
