Howdy, and welcome to the 7th edition of Behind the Music, a special behind the scenes email series leading up to the release of Be Bold on May 5th. Today we explore "Pillow," a song about the realistic, routine day of love (in contrast to the polished version in movies!)
And guess what!? Pre-ordering for the album begins this Friday!
I'm sure you've all heard the old adage, "never go to bed angry." That's probably one of the most impossible words of wisdom, since we're all human and can't simply turn off emotion. Through research of emotion and memory, we've discovered that when experiencing a given emotion, our brain draws upon memories that support it. It's physiologically difficult to break that cycle immediately! After processing and confirming this thought in counseling, I had to write a song about it. None of us are perfect, and we all get mad sometimes. But you can still be mad and be in love. So "for now, let's take it slow. I'll be your pillow."
Yours in music,
