Free

Songfacts®:

  • DeGraw told OK! Magazine about the Free album: "I spend lots of time analyzing myself and this album is about figuring myself out in a sense, not in a vain way but more in a critical way. It reflects my own personal battle from within and my many extremes."
  • Free was recorded over a space of a fortnight in Brooklyn and was produced by Camus Celli (Tina Turner, David Byrne). DeGraw's backing band on the album is guitarist Audley Freed (Black Crowes), bassist Andy Hess (Gov't Mule), drummer Charley Drayton (X-Pensive Winos) and keyboardist George Laks (Lenny Kravitz).
