"I immensely enjoyed making this album. I was able to experiment a little with different sounds and rhythms. Usually you see my Thank you''s on the album but I want to take time here to thank my wonderful and loyal fans for giving me the opportunity to indulge you through music. It has been such an honor serving you. Come, sit and eat at my table of love."
