Free My Love
by DEC3

  • "Free My Love" is the tenth track on DEC3's 2014 debut self-titled album. It was written by DEC3's primary songwriter, Jon Haber. Even though Haber walked away from performing at the age of 24 to open his successful New York instrument retail chain, Alto Music, he never stopped writing songs.

    "Free My Love" was the first tune that Haber and longtime vocal collaborator, Chris Saulpaugh, worked on together in 1997. When Haber decided to start the DEC3 project in February of 2013, "Free My Love" was one of the old songs that Haber re-did for the album. He even changed the lyrics and title. Haber only kept a couple of parts and a guitar solo from the original recording.
  • In our interview with Haber, he explained the story happening in the song. "Basically, the guy had two loves in his life: his girl and then drugs or alcohol. The guy's in jail and that's the imagery I'm trying to portray," he said.

    It is a dark tune displaying that the man made the wrong choice between his loves, but he would still make that same choice again despite the outcome.
