Interview with EDEN

Days before his debut album 'vertigo' is released, we speak to EDEN about recording voice notes, independence and future collaborations.

Releasing an album can be a stressful experience for the most experienced of artists – but what if you are an artist releasing his debut album? What if almost all of your tracks beforehand had gained millions of streams? What if your whole album has no featured artists? And, what if you produced most of it in your bedroom?

John Green (the author of books including ‘Looking For Alaska’, ‘Paper Towns’ and ‘The Fault In Our Stars’) has released a new book, “Turtles All The Way Down”. The book centres around 16-year-old Aza Holmes who is pursuing the mystery of a fugitive billionaire, whilst living with multiple anxiety disorders.

It is no secret that in today’s society many young people, us included, suffer from anxiety, depression and bullying.
