Describe the track in two words.
What was the writing process like?
Quick, organic, natural, therapeutic. It was musical.
What was the recording process like?
An absolutely incredible vibe. We spent wild and crazy days, nights, weeks straight in the studio hanging out all night letting emotions out. Notably, my favorite 9 people laughing ridiculous amounts, and crying even when I felt the moments so exact like when I wrote it. It was a rollercoaster: exciting and thrilling. We pulled in incredible musicians and friends out in LA and New York City, flew people out and just saturated ourselves in the process. Being in the studio, living this life as an artist, it’s incredible. And knowing that I’m doing what artists like Janis, Madonna, Michael, Elvis, BB King, what they did, it’s just fantastic. This song and any song, it’s everything it takes to make a baby.
