Songfacts®:

  • In an interview by Artist Direct with vocalist Nick Hexum, he made the comment regarding this song: "We really tried to go with a feeling of following the emotions rather than saying, 'What will people think?' We have to make a record from the heart. The title 'My Heart Sings' came first after I wrote the riff. The music has such a lush feeling, like my heart is singing. I turned that into a chorus and a hook. Having the emotion lead the way is kind of a different approach for 311."
  • Uplifter was the ninth studio album by the Nebraska alternative rock quintet, 311 It was produced by Bob Rock, who has also worked with Metallica and Motley Crue.
