‘WTTS In Conversation’ is a bi-weekly podcast delivering decades of WTTS interviews with music legends and emerging artists.
For Episode #37, Band of Horses frontman Ben Bridwell talks to morning host Matt Pelsor about the various inspirations for the new album Things are Great; breakups, both personal and within the band, as well as musical inspiration from a hotel room in Iceland. He shares on their decision to produce the record internally, and on his appreciation for being able to play out again; as well as why he’s looking forward to come to Indy specifically.
