This last Sunday (23rd), the inimitable singer of the much-adored Cocteau Twins made a rare public appearance and discussed the Blue Bell Knoll album with John Grant. The full interview is available at The Quietus.
“I listened to Blue Bell Knoll for the first time in years and I cried, I just thought it was so lovely,” says Fraser, remembering the creative process as an opportunity for the band to escape the pressures of their private lives. “It was quite a difficult time, and I think we just decided to throw ourselves into the creativity. Getting immersed in that process and not worrying about how it would be perceived or the outcome, just going with the flow without expectations, no endgame, just enjoy it, and if it’s not working try something else.”
