In a new interview, Taylor expanded on a quote from his latest book, You’re Making Me Hate You, where he admitted that pop music made him ashamed to be a singer/songwriter.
“It’s so auto-tuned, it’s so beat-corrected, it’s so canned and processed and lifeless… I mean, you might as well be listening to a fucking piece of wood at that point,” Taylor says. “It bothers me, because I put so much into everything I do, I put so much into my music – I bleed for it and die for it every god damn night, you know?
“To watch these people basically let a computer go through the motions and do all the work for them, it’s insulting to everyone out there who has more talent and less attention.”
