On this brisk pop-rocker, Austin soul and blues veteran Malford Millgan turns in a vocal performance that positively sparkles. The song is sunny, the lyrics mature and reflective. But wait until Johnson ushers in ominous storm clouds of growling chords and a solo that’s pure hellfire.
Eric Johnson says:
“Bill Maddox helped me write some of the lyrics. It’s about the space inside all of us that’s so bright and intuitive and just waiting to explode, if we allow it to happen.
“Originally, I sang it, but I just thought, Man, it’s good and all, but my voice sounds a little too smooth, too clean. Actually, this was a real turning point in the album when I started bringing some other people in. I wanted some other textures and moods, and I think it’s great to hear different sounds than just me doing everything myself all the time.
“The song’s a little pop and kind of polished, so Malford’s voice, which has more of a soulful edge than mine, really suits the tune. The guy‘s amazing.”
