"It's not about taking time off from something," Gunn explains. "It's more like this idea that time isn't passing at all. It's not like a vacation—it's more like refusing to believe time's running out. At least I don't want to believe that it is. Michael Chapman, my hero, is 70 years old, and he still does what he's been doing all his life. He has a vision and he sticks to it. There's a strange pressure that comes along with getting older—with time—and I'm trying to turn that off.

"I'm learning how to deal with it, at least," he continues, slouching into the sofa. "But it's hard to live a tranquil life when you live in such a maniacal place. You have to be very patient."

Steve Gunn's new album, Time Off, is out Tuesday, June 18, on Paradise of Bachelors.
