Speaking to Lyrical Lemonade about the concept behind his new project, Bennett explained that he wanted to unite people who feel alienated in society.
"I realized to myself that what I want to do with my music is to bring people together, and I think the best way to bring people together sometimes is to even out the playing field," he said. "I think that very often we try to use things like skin color, money, materialistic assets and others like that to say that we are better than other people, but I think that even people who have money buy these things because they feel and want to be accepted by a different class or different people.
"It brought me to the overall idea that all of us are rejects and we really all don’t belong, but that’s a part of being unique, different, and standing out. I wanted to further that idea and get more people to understand that even KKK members are rejects because you can be accepted by some people and hated by others. Everyone deals with it: transsexuals, black kids, white kids, doctors, everyone."
The American Reject is the third in a series of EPs Bennett has released following Restoration of An American Idol and last year's Be Yourself.
