Greg Kurstin interview - mentions Max+Luke

Check it out, it's worth every word.
He talks about writing with Katy Perry, Sia, 90s music, etc.

NME: Whatís the difference between writing with an artist like Sia, whose obviously a long-time songwriter, and someone more established in the pop world like Katy Perry?

GK: Sia is like no one else Iíve ever worked with. She comes completely from this non-logical but very emotional place. I could be wrong, but she doesnít really seem to analyse what sheís writing. She doesnít really revise it, but goes with that first thing that comes out. And a lot of the time, the song will be written and finished in a short amount of time. When I work with someone like Katy, and itís always different with every pop star, we come back to the song, and itís like: ĎIs that the best chorus? Letís revise the chorusí. And I think she probably comes from that Dr Luke/Max Martin world where they might try five different choruses until the best one comes out. But Siaís never like that. Most of the time the first thing that comes out is what youíre going to get. Thatís the major difference, thereís not a lot of revising and crafting as much as the pop songs, itís just one emotional expression and thatís it.
