Banhart prefers to describe his work as ‘un-popular pop music’, an apt description for his music which is in many ways indescribable. His eighth studio album, Mala, reflects the constant evolution of his aesthetic and abilities as a songwriter.

We caught up with Banhart at home in New York ahead of the release of Mala this Friday, and talked about art, doing away with metaphors and the difference between influence and inspiration.
