Claudio, as much as you can, talk about why The Afterman is being divided into two separate releases.

To me, in terms of putting the record out in different pieces, I really wanted people to reflect, think about and absorb part one before letting them experience the second part. When it comes to double records, I know sometimes it’s hard to make everything feel cohesive. There was a time when it was easier. I remember listening to The Wall by Pink Floyd and that to me worked beautifully as a double album. But the song lengths were unconventional and the way the story flowed made it work incredibly well, but that was also a time when I think people had longer attention spans. That’s part of it, too. I want listeners to be able to really digest everything and not get too overwhelmed, and today there are different challenges when it comes to people’s time. I’m a little apprehensive about putting too much out there at once. I’ll say this too, that this first album offers a sort of sonic cliffhanger which I really think will leave the listener wanting more.
