Aimee Mann new album, Queens of the Summer Hotel, is out now

NPR's A Martínez talks to songwriter Aimee Mann about her album: Queens of the Summer Hotel. It's based on the book, Girl, Interrupted, which chronicles the author's stay in a mental institution.

"It's interesting to me to try to be compassionate to the characters in [Girl, Interrupted]," Mann says. "That seems like a positive thing."
