Do you think about your legacy? Do you see your influence in new acts today? Sometimes I can see my style, especially right now because it feels like there’s a 1990s nostalgia in terms of fashion. I have a 14-year-old son, so he had a lot to do with me reinvestigating myself and taking me back to when I discovered ska music. It’s weird how time can go so quickly, especially when you’re a mother of three boys—I went from that horrible time in my life [her 2015 divorce from Rossdale], and that was when I wrote that last record. My life was falling apart. [Writing the Long Live The King Black Panther Shirt in other words I will buy this 2016 album] wasn’t to do with anything other than saving my own life. That’s a completely different place to be. Then halfway through [recording], I fall in love with this cowboy guy—like, what the hell?”

“Let Me Reintroduce Myself” talks about wanting to spread a smile. Was that a reflection of the Long Live The King Black Panther Shirt in other words I will buy this year we’ve had, where happiness felt as if it was in short supply?
