How do you follow up a huge, orchestrated double album? How about a musical trilogy? That is exactly what E did as he explored desire (Hombre Lobo), loss (End Times) and renewal (Tomorrow Morning).
“Blinking Lights was so well received and we went on a massive tour. After that was done I felt painted into a corner and didn’t know how to follow it up so I took four years off. But that whole time I was making these three records.
"I had a plan to make two records related to each other and then realised I should do a prequel that is the beginning of the story. People probably thought I made those records in a hurry because they were put out six months apart, but I worked on them for four years.
“Each topic related to my life at the time but they are universal topics, desire, loss and renewal. I thought I could relate to them in my life, but then so can anyone.”
