Olivia also addressed the process of creating the latest album by saying, "I wouldn’t say it’s always been effortless for me by any means.”

Rodrigo then closed off her monologue claiming, “I found that just simply showing up to create something everyday, even if I didn’t feel extremely inspired, was what pulled me out of that dread and made me start to get really excited about the music I was making.”
