Storm Passes Away

Album: Shangri La (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Bugg penned this song with Raconteurs singer and guitarist Brendan Benson and the singer's longtime collaborator, Iain Archer from Snow Patrol. It was one of three songs written by the trio that ended up on Shangri La, the others being "Messed Up Kids" and "Kingpin."

    "That came from my publishing end," Bugg recalled to Billboard magazine. "I was very sceptical about three guys in a room trying to write tunes, but I gave it a try and thought maybe I'd learn a thing or two. We just jammed around in the studio and it was fun and natural for a few days. So that was pretty sweet."
