Anything Emma Chamberlain welcomed a singer-songwriter Mac Demarco. DeMarco, a somewhat elusive artist who’s been largely out of the public eye in recent years before returning to music earlier this year, sat down with Chamberlain for a wide-ranging conversation.
Throughout the interview, Mac and Emma had a great relationship. The two spoke about their first meeting at Coachella, where Mac said he had just quit smoking and felt like he was eating mushrooms and was “totally insane.” DeMarco also reflected on how the music industry has changed with the rise of TikTok’s virality.
DeMarco also said of his onstage comments that made people think he was retiring from touring: “Maybe I’m retiring from the situation I was in.” DeMarco also talked about leaving social media completely, saying it’s a personal decision as to how much he wants to share and how much he wants to be present in his daily life.
DeMarco also touched on his brand, saying he strives to remain authentic in an era where you have the option of having your songs written by AI or by 15 anonymous songwriters.
