Twenty One Pilots' Josh Dun had an interview with Hanuman Welch on Beats 1 in which he talked about the band's latest two tracks, their upcoming record in comparison to older records, their break and their fans.

What became clear from the interview is that although it looked like they were taking a break, they worked their asses off and that after a full year in the spotlight, this is what they needed.

You can read what he said below.
“We’ve had extensive conversations on all our songs and where they are, and what order to have people listen to things.
We kind of agreed for “Jumpsuit” and “Nico,” that these two really kind of were a nice bridge coming from where things left off with the last album, "Blurryface".

I feel like having something that really connected the two albums together and really felt like a natural progression from where it was at before just made sense. Not to say that the rest of the album sounds way different, but that one I think to us, really felt like it was the most connecting.

With both of our albums before, there was kind of a place from which to write. Whether that’s personal things going on in life, or thoughts, or just emotional or spiritual journeys.

I think within this one, there is a place from which to write, and I think it’s looming out a little bit from that character, and still learning about that character, but a little bit more into the story, if that makes sense.

I think the way that we looked at it was just kind of like an intentional quiet period, which kind of happened for multiple reasons.
One was coming off the back of a long tour that realistically, was kind of probably five or six years of nonstop travel. Then, the Grammy thing was crazy, and it was a really big year, or couple of years for us.

During the time where we were creating and working, we kind of wanted to just step back a little bit, and be present in that world, and not bore people with stuff that isn’t as important as the content we’re working on.

Because naturally, if there’s not something that’s so in your face, they’re going to stray away a little bit, which is fine and that’s normal."
