The alt-country star, best known for his drawling cover of Nirvana’s “In Bloom,” returns with Sound & Fury, a new album and anime Netflix special that the singer claims is inspired by Eminem. The artist told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1:

“We were in Detroit while we were making the record, and I was sort of writing it in real time and listening to a lot of Eminem. And I was just like, ‘Man, this guy gets to talk mad s**t. How come we can’t do that?’ So I just sat down and wrote a bunch of mad s**t talking songs about how f**king awesome we are. And then we recorded it.”  Watch the trailer of the anime film below:
