Lupe spoke to TheBoombox about Lasers and made the following statements:
On the sound/content:
"It's way more of a pop album, to be honest, for various reasons and various forces within the industry and what have you, ['Lasers'] came with all this baggage, a lot of social baggage. We opened up the album with a manifesto.When I say we opened up the album before we even recorded one song, we wrote a manifesto. We came up with the things we wanted to see changed in the world and that kinda took a life of its own. For me, that was the point of [this] album."
On the social statement:
"It's less about the music and more about actually coming out and really having a strong social statement that you could feel, like back in the '60s or '70s when Bob Dylan made a song, it was a movement.
To see ['Lasers'] become this whole thing in and of itself, and become bigger than itself and bigger than the music, differs radically from my first two records."
