  • HAPPY, IN MY MASSIVE LIBRARY.

  • >> James: IT'S AN IMPRESSIVE LIBRARY.

  • I LIKE IT.

  • IT'S EXACTLY WHERE I IMAGINED YOU WOULD BE.

  • >> YES, YES.

  • I'M HERE WHERE THERE'S A HARPS CORD, THERE'S CANDELABRAS, IT'S

  • GREAT.

  • NOT WEARING ANY PANTS.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> James: AS I'VE TOLD YOU

  • PRIVATELY AND I WILL TELL YOU NOW, I THINK THE NEW ALBUM IS

  • ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHINGLY BRILLIANT, AND CONGRATULATIONS

  • ON THE GRAMMY NOMINATION BY JUST CAME OUT THIS PAST FEW WEEKS.

  • WHAT DID YOU THINK WHEN YOU HEARD THE NEWS?

  • >> I HAVE TO ADMIT, MY HUSBAND AND I, WHO IS ALSO MY MANAGER,

  • WHEN WE HEARD IN THE MORNING, WE STARTED CRYING, WE WERE SO HAPPY

  • BECAUSE ANY GOOD NEWS IS GOOD NEWS AND, CERTAINLY, AFTER THE

  • ELECTION, OUR SENSES WERE SOMEWHAT ADDLED, SO WHEN WE

  • HEARD ABOUT THE GRAMMY, WE WERE VERY, VERY EXCITED AND VERY,

  • VERY HAPPY.

  • MY DAD WON A GRAMMY A FEW YEARS AGO AND, SO, IT'S NECESSARY THAT

  • I AM NOMINATED.

  • >> James: WELL, OKAY.

  • WE'LL MAYBE DELVE INTO THAT ON A PODCAST.

  • I MEAN, THE ALBUM, WHERE DID THE TITLE "UNFOLLOW THE RULES" COME

  • FROM?

  • >> "UNFOLLOW THE RULES" CAME FROM OUR DAUGHTER VIVA WHO ONE

  • DAY WALKED INTO THE LIVING ROOM AND SAID, DADDY, SOMETIMES I

  • JUST WANT TO UNFOLLOW THE RULES.

  • AND I, OF COURSE, LET HER DO THAT, DIDN'T TAKE ANY NOTICE OF

  • WHAT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT AND JUST WROTE A SONG AND STOLE HER

  • LYRIC.

  • >> James: IT'S SO GOOD AND THERE ARE SO MANY STANDOUT

  • SONGS.

  • THERE'S ONE PARTICULAR SONG WHICH I THINK IS THE LAST SONG

  • ON THE ALBUM, IS THAT RIGHT?

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> James: A SONG CALLED "ALONE TIME," WHICH I MIGHT HAVE

  • LISTENED TO A THOUSAND TIMES IN THIS PERIOD OF LOCKDOWN.

  • IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

  • WHAT WAS IT THAT INSPIRED THAT SONG?

  • >> YEAH, WELL, I WAS STAYING, ACTUALLY, WITH MY HUSBAND, WE

  • WERE STAYING WITH HELEN CARTER AT A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN LONDON

  • AND I THINK WE WERE ALL JUST -- AT THE TIME, SHE WAS WITH TIM

  • BURTON, AND ENG WE WERE JUST ALL SICK OF EACH OTHER'S SPOUSES OR

  • SOMETHING, AND, SO, I TOOK A WALK INTO CAMDEN DOWN TO AMONGST

  • HIPPIES AND, YOU KNOW, DRUG ADDICTS AND PEOPLE WITH WEIRD

  • HAIR, AND A SONG CAME TO ME.

  • IT WAS ABOUT, YOU KNOW, ESCAPING BELL SIZE PARK, BASICALLY.

  • >> James: I'M VERY, VERY FAMILIAR WITH THAT FEELING OF

  • ESCAPING BELL SIZE PARK SO MUCH SO THAT I MOVED HERE.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) YOU RECENTLY POSTED, WHICH

  • PEOPLE SHOULD SEE, A PERFORMANCE OF YOU AND DARREN CHRIS SINGING

  • "BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER" WHICH IS A GORGEOUS RENDITION.

  • HOW DID THAT COME ABOUT?

  • >> YOU KNOW, THAT SONG I WAS ALWAYS AFRAID TO SING AND, YOU

  • KNOW, I THINK IT'S CONSIDERED ONE OF THE GREAT BALLADS FOR A

  • MALE AND, SO, AND GARFUNKEL'S VERSION IS SO EPIC AND ICONIC

  • THAT I NEVER WANTED TO TOUCH IT.

  • BUT I KNEW AT SOME POINT I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE IT A SHOT AND, SO,

  • I DID, AND I ENLISTED DARREN CRIST TO HELP ME OUT.

  • BUT IT'S WEIRD BECAUSE IT FIT VERY WELL IN MY VOICE, AND IT'S

  • NOT AS HIGH AS I THOUGHT IT WAS.

  • SO MAYBE I'M JUST NOT AS HIGH AS I USED TO BE.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) I FEEL LIKE I COULD PULL IT OFF.

  • >> James: WELL, CONGRATULATIONS ON THE ALBUM,

  • CONGRATULATIONS ON EVERYTHING THAT'S HAPPENING, IT REALLY IS,

  • AS ALL OF OUR ALBUMS ARE, AND I THINK YOU'VE NEVER SOUNDED

  • BETTER ON AN ALBUM AND IT'S REALLY GOTTEN ME THROUGH A LOT

  • OF MOMENTS THESE PAST FEW MONTHS.

  • CONGRATS.

  • WHEN WE COME BACK, RUFUS WILL PERFORM "ALONE TIME" RIGHT HERE.

  • COME ON BACK, EVERYONE
