Running in Central Park is my favorite thing to wake up and do. I have my own specific path that I have to run every single time. There’s a little bit of OCD involved, but I love it.Nate Ruess
I worry that if I enjoy something – like the songs on ‘Some Nights’ are about wondering about who you are. I’m never quite sure and I’d hate to feel sort of content and get a good sense of who I am because if I know one thing, that’s not me. I don’t mind not necessarily being happy about it. And that’s fine.Nate Ruess
As a songwriter I hate this whole, ‘If it’s a sad song, it has to sound like a sad song thing.’ And that goes all the way back to my days with the Format. I’m an insane narcissist, so if I have to get something off my chest, I’ll get something off my chest.Nate Ruess
I don’t play an instrument – I just write in my head, and I usually hear fully formed songs. ‘We Are Young’ turned out so much like it was in my head. But it also exceeded all my expectations.Nate Ruess
I don’t have a Twitter or a Facebook, but that doesn’t mean I’m any more productive than the rest of the world.Nate Ruess
