I believe that the beauty of repetition is something that is not explored enough yet. (Keren Ann)

Keren Ann - From the Sleep category:

It was an hour and a half plane ride, so I slept. I try to sleep because that's probably the only time I get to get my real sleep. When I can't sleep I read books or watch movies. (Keren Ann)

Keren Ann - From the Studio category:

I like the idea of having a calm, quiet room to work on my music while knowing that outside there's noise and a lot happening. It's reassuring to know the 'everyday' continues even though inside the studio you feel so disconnected from it. (Keren Ann)

I was in the studio so much, it was about the search for air in a metaphoric sense, and the breathing has more to do with travel for me, about the search musically for open air. (Keren Ann)

Keren Ann - From the Theme category:

The themes come back. I guess I get obsessed with certain things like absence, lust, longing. They come back through different stories and different characters. But I also like how it stays mysterious. (Keren Ann)

I'm always on a train or a plane, so wherever I happen to be is home. (Keren Ann)

Keren Ann - From the Writing category:

So usually even if you like a sentence or a story or something, it won't come out that way - it'll come out years later, and in a different way, and you don't really control that. (Keren Ann)
