It’s the first bit of new music from the pianist/composer since he released his album You Finally Knew last September. From a musician’s perspective, he explained how enamored he was by Finneas‘ instrumentation and knew how to strip it down without losing its emotive touch.
“A great song is a great song no matter the genre or instrument,” Lawson said in a press statement. “When I first heard this track, I was geeking how Finneas crafted such a unique melody based on his chordal theme; so creative. Add Billie’s unabashed vulnerability to the mix and you have the artistic marriage of head and heart. I knew this song would resonate with just a piano.”
