I’ll Explain Later is a sentiment that Nico has fully embodied on his quest to design the world in which he wants to live in, all while undoing the negativity around him. This state of mind is fittingly the name of Nico’s forthcoming album. A year and a half in the making, Nico allowed himself time, space and clarity to write I’ll Explain Later, with the intent and fervor he required.
