After keeping busy working with friend and film director Martin Scorsese, Robbie Robertson stepped out of his comfort zone in storytelling through songwriting on his album, How to Become Clairvoyant.

When he visited Studio A, I had a chance to ask Robbie about the project and its unabashedly autobiographical songs, including one that draws on The Band's breakup.
