We reviewed lead single on last week’s podcast and here it is in full.
“‘Here They Come’ is about a friend who tends to run from his problems, When the going gets tough, he tends to just cut and run. The song is about the specific moment when the lights are coming up in a movie theater where he’s been hiding out all day, and life’s complications are just coming back into focus.”
“All of the songs on my new record are about people. Individual, real people. Some are strangers I’ve met, but a lot are friends.”– Hamilton Leithhauser
