discussing the album in a recent interview with Granthshala, Wilcox explained how it happened. “When COVID shut everything down last year, it allowed me to focus on writing and recording the next album,” she said. “We recorded in Simon’s outdoor studio with just him, my husband and I.

“‘Posh Pop’ was a magical experience created out of the need and ability to make heartfelt contact with our fans. Also the eerie distance between those who run the world and those on the ground inspired my writing.”

She continued: “Working with Fripp in the studio, we handed him the chord charts the day before and said: ‘We want you to come in and improvise and that’s what we’ll use’. It was spontaneous.”
