[Speaker]
And now, let's repeat the Non-Conformist Oath!
I promise to be different!

I promise to be different!

I promise to be unique!

I promise not to repeat things other people say!

The unedited version of The Non-Conformist Oath

The Interlude features a sample of American comedian, Steve Martin's Non-Conformist Oath from his 1978 comedy album, A Wild and Crazy Guy. The audio was lowered in pitch, slightly distorted, and slowed down to about 0.80 times the normal speed.

Analysis

The interlude may be interpreted as the band's way of indirectly acknowledging how different the album sounds in comparison to their older works. It can be seen as the band's way of breaking from their distinct style of music in an attempt reinvent themselves to avoid growing stale in the ever-changing and evolving landscape of music.
