He explains how he quickly found fans and how those fans helped put together the tracklist for his new collection.
On that note, Carrabba also discusses finding rarities, how his lyrics have aged, and his plans to play full album shows on the upcoming tour, particularly 2001's The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most and 2003's A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar.
Later, Carrabba revisits how he rebelled against the industry, and weighs in on being cited as an influence by a generation of Soundcloud rap artists.
