About the MassEducation, “Two dear friends playing songs together with the kind of secret understanding one can only get through endless nights in New York City," she said in a statement. “Thomas and I faced each other – him, huddled over a grand piano, me, curled on a couch. We neither rehearsed nor spoke about how to approach any song, but rather played two to three live takes, picked the best one and trusted in the feeling of the moment. It was fast, intuitive … raw.”
