WHAT THE ARTIST HAS TO SAY:
"When i was writing I wanted an intro that knocked right off the bat. I knew when I left the studio that day Funeral was the one. I felt it was important to set a precedent and go wild with it. Looking back at it, this was the song that sort of set the tempo for the remainder of the project. Its what gave me that momentum and I felt good getting back to doing what I love."
