"It's a record company title," says Thompson with a shrug. "It's some sort of bizarre marketing exercise." He laughs drily. "I'm sure in weeks to come it will all become clear."
"I'm less influenced by what I consider the outside stuff: where I am physically. I'm more concerned with this inner landscape where the drama happens. It all helps to put the picture together. A lot of my songwriting is trying to address those questions: Who am I? Where do I come from? How come my parents were the way they were?"
Vibrant, varied and moving, Electric is simply the latest instalment in Thompson's compelling search for the answers.
