Part 4

In this 4th interview of a series of 7, Alex explains the writing process he has gone through for his first solo album, “Windows in the Sky”, starting with the words then adding the music, which is quite unusual for music writing in general, and unusual for him in the way he worked with Your Favorite Enemies before.

Part 3

To write this album, Alex Henry Foster had to leave home. He moved to Tangier, a place that became a new home for him. Now alone, his own self – his thoughts, his fears, his dreams – was the only thing to keep him company. It’s through writing that he’s been able to face all those different emotions, which eventually led to the album.

Watch the 3rd part of this 7-part interview to learn more about his solo residency in Tangier.
