"While I was writing this album I kept seeing magazine and newspaper stands with their constantly changing covers and headlines and thinking how they come and go so fast," explains ANDY of the album title. "I had to write about 100 songs to get 13 I felt had something grounded and timeless about it. I don't know if I achieved my goal but I hope I was able to create songs that were timeless and not something that would come and go off the newsstands. I hope this collection of songs can have the staying power in someone's life like a favorite novel or book."
