Vaporize

Songfacts®:

  • Amos Lee came up with this song when he was bathing himself. "I wrote 'Vaporize' in the shower one day. Just the verse and chorus," he told The Huffington Post. "Then put it on the shelf for a while until I heard 'Studio' by ScHoolboy Q, and wanted to find a way to do something with that flavor in a room with a drummer and bass player. Add to it live strings moods, and an incredible rhythm section, and you get the core of 'Vaporize.'"
