In the first of a series of clips where Coco Sumner of I Blame Coco talks viewers through all the tracks on her forthcoming debut album ‘The Constant’, the daughter of Sting discusses ‘Selfmachine’. Sumner explained the studio experience, the ideas that gave birth to the song and the people who helped make it happen. “It’s a song of alienation,” Coco explained. “It’s about programmed robot who can only feel sympathy for itself. It’s programmed to be selfish. It can’t empathize with any other characters, and for that reason everyone leaves the robot and the robot’s all alone.” Watch the clip via YouTube below.
