On the subject of the album’s title, Bennett recently explained to Hails & Horns Magazine, “The record is about humanity’s personalization and obsession with death. Life never really ends because it cycles over and over. It is infinite and immortal. Energy is transferred and life grows out of death. Death itself is an illusion. Humanity gave death a face and a name. When the last of humanity dies, so does the idea of death. Some of us are so concerned with death that we forget to live. “
