Diagnosed with lymphoma on January 29, 2018, Dylan went through a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions but finally landed on a newfound drive to keep creating music and make the best of what potentially would have been his final days.
Just Learning It Somehow covers Dylan's musical childhood up through his battle against lymphoma. But there are reoccurring themes that go beyond that challenge — specifically his love for music, which became a focus after a concussion while playing football. Even after making a full-time switch to music, he spent two to three years just writing without recording much new material. He further explained over the phone, "I was finding myself under the influence of other creative people around me. I focused more on what I wanted to say as a songwriter."
For The FADER.
