Sep-08"Fire Escape" was born of a weeks worth of late nights in New York City. I'd been traveling in support of the first Wilderness album for nearly 2 years when I found myself with a rare weekend off in a town that's been known to get the best of me. The acrobat, the banker, the oxblood friend; these larger than life characters are the real life squad that lead me through the boroughs, bodegas, bars and subway stations found in the lyrics of this song. When it was all said and done the nearly illegible pocketsize-notebook prose charting our adventures was curated in a high rise studio off 49th street. The friends I made there, while writing "Fire Escape" have gone on to be the collaborators in charge of bringing the full length album to life. We bonded over the thought of old friends losing their shit in a city that doesn't sleep, but also about the beauty of having a home to crawl back to when the sun comes out. A number one if you will. I think it's the realization that sometimes the party does end and in that moment where you're standing and who you're standing next to says a lot about what comes next. "Fire Escape" is a song full of mantra's from a time filled with joy and achievement, chaos, insecurity and good friends. "Never go home", "We belong awake"... Maybe these are words to live by, maybe I adopted them as a credo to justify my true nature as an escapist. Whatever it is, it's yours now. It's my pleasure to welcome you to the party, try not to break anything. Watch the lyric video (link in bio). North America, you can now get the song on @AppleMusic, @Spotify, etc. It will be available internationally tomorrow. p.s. thank you to @AM_Chalk for drawing your way through these lyrics.
