In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, Ruess admitted that he could've taken the songs found on Grand Romantic to the other members of fun. and used them for the long-awaited follow-up to the band's highly successful album, Some Nights. Instead, however, he kept them for himself.
"You get a little selfish about the songs that you write, and it's really hard to do that in a group setting, where there are two other people, and you have to think about everybody else's feelings," he says. "I'm writing and singing these songs about myself. When you work with producers versus bandmates, that line becomes a lot less blurry."
