"I just want it to come out, to be a surprise, a magical experience. I liked standing in line for a couple of hours trying to get 'Blonde on Blonde' and having no idea what was going to be on it. I liked standing in line to see Psycho, having no idea what's going to happen except for the poster. That's the way I like it, and I try my best, even in the present culture, to present our work like that."
-Patti Smith, on her new album
