The making of Gravity At Last

ayointerview.jpg Interview with Ayo. on France24

Background:

"An album was not enough to talk about my life, my experiences, my views. In this new album I talk about what shocks me in the world, policies and corruption. But there are new topics such as 'Love, my father, my mother, my son. My music allows me to express many things that hurt me and I can not speak, it helps me very much, it's a real therapy, as for the first disc, but my therapy is not finished." Ayo. says (Source: Ayo: une tournée aux États-Unis et un nouvel album (France-Amérique.com) French original: "Un album ne suffisait pas pour parler de ma vie, de mes expériences, de mes opinions. Dans ce nouvel album je parle de ce qui me choque dans le monde, des politiques et de la corruption. Mais il y a de nouveau sujets comme l’amour, mon père, ma mère, mon fils. Ma musique me permet d’exprimer beaucoup de choses qui me font mal et dont je n’arrive pas à parler, cela m’aide beaucoup, c’est une véritable thérapie, comme pour le premier disque, mais ma thérapie n’est pas finie!")
