“When writing for ‘Shifty Adventures’ I noticed an apparent theme of claustrophobic darkness…One [song] in particular was me dreaming about a breeze, space and light. Recalling those early days in my sticky, sweltering NYC flat—how I’d heard summer from the West Coast—thinking how the California landscape informed a vibe that churned out Brian Wilson, Herb Alpert and that strange sexy breeze in your ears. Since the album was predominantly located in the darker, eerie swamps of ‘Nookie Wood,’ it seemed like the wrong place to put this song, but now, just feels right to let it out…” John Cale
