Many of us were quite surprised earlier this year when Christopher Owens, frontman of the acclaimed S.F. band Girls, suddenly announced his departure. After laying low for a while (and doing some modeling!), Owens is back with a new solo album, Lysandre, due in January, which he recently previewed at an intimate show in S.F.
But many Girls fans are still wondering what led Owens to break up his band with producer/bassist J.R. White in the first place. And in a new interview with NME, Owens answers that question. In short, Owens says, he just got tired of working with so many different people.
