Highways and Clouds

  • songfacts ®
  • Amos Lee acted as his own producer for the first time on Spirit. It was noted that the demo versions are remarkably different from the final versions that came out through the recording process. He said: "With something like 'Highways and Clouds,' I didn't want to just do the standard waltz feel that's led by the acoustic guitar. I wanted to add dimensions to the arrangements and try to transform them, rhythmically and instrumentally, so that the album was cohesive."
