Getting Down to Brass Tracks
When it came time to record vocals for the album, Antonoff and Hill took a rather unique approach: They tried everything. "A lot of times I'd do a lead-vocal take, and then we'd layer it and on the left side we'd pan a take of me 10-feet away from the mic, or me singing in the bathroom," Antonoff said. "And on the right side we’d have a really weird, muted take of me singing into that horn. The album has a really wide sound, and having very different vocal sounds happening all at once, it just feels like a live picture."
