When we asked The B-52s’ Cindy Wilson to share one of the meanings behind the title of her new solo album Change (Nov. 17), she couldn’t help but joke, “Well I’ve already been through the change” before dissolving into her infectious laugh that kept us cracking up throughout the episode.
“It’s the change between The B-52s and this project here,” she adds. “And it’s been a very growing experience, and I’m still growing. I love that. I love that so much.”
Listen as Wilson takes us through the “very psychedelic,” “very David Lynch” early days of The B-52s through today as juggles touring with that band and launching her own solo endeavor — which she says isn’t that dissimilar from how The B-52s started out.
“That’s a gift to be able to have that again, and I’m trippin’ on it,” she says. “It doesn’t seem like a bother, but like lots of adventures.”
