Regarding “Damn Bean,” he revealed, “I wrote this music video treatment as a metaphor for my own personal experience. I was led on in a relationship, and I was left feeling expendable and less than. I used the bondage suit to display a submissive and dehumanized character. I then started mustering up the courage to try and meet new people; really putting myself out there. When I wasn’t looking, it hit me. I met someone who was on my same wavelength, someone who I felt genuinely understood me.”
