Kim about 'King of the World'
I wanted to make a monument for my friend Patrick, who died of heart failure, with this song. He was a great guy and this song was a tribute to his personality. (1)
'King of the World' was one of the songs that came really quickly and (...) you know when something really good is happening. I remember I just felt literally, physically, like I had something like some kind of wire or connection between me and something else. Universal energy or something. I remember just feeling like I was automatic writing. I wasn't even thinking about it. It's just this automatic writing started happening. (2)
