Nyman's February 2005 statement about the album printed within the booklet is very brief:

All my music starts out as piano music so the opportunity to get back to that essence appealed to me Hence my desire to make this album a personal signature as a composer/performer I have deliberately focused on my more song-like music: the album title suggested itself
