“I want records to be like newspapers. I’d like them to come out at least once a week, or twice a week. With this song [‘Instant Karma!’], we wrote it in the morning, recorded and re-mixed it and got it out in a week, here and in the States, which was pretty fast and moving. I want it to be like that, you know. I want to be able to put it out as it happens. I write songs about what’s happening to me at that moment and I want it to be out at that moment. I don’t care what name goes on it.”

1970 interview with BBC Radio host David Wigg, quoted in The Beatles: Off the Record, by Keith Badman (London: Omnibus Press, 2008), 487.
