Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Vestiges + Claws is a reflective spare meditation on the shared mystery of humanity.

    We don't choose where we're born
    We don't choose in what pocket or form
    But we can learn to know ourselves
    On this globe in the void


    The song was recorded by Gonzalez in his home, with little more than his guitar as instrumentation.
  • The accompanying video comes in both a standard form and an interactive 360° experience. The visual was produced by the global collective Eyes In Space and features a team launching a camera into the air, that takes the viewer through the clouds into space. "Basically its the realization that we are a fragile blue ball filled with life floating in the void and darkness space," said Simon Morris, who co-directed the clip with Chris Higham. "We wanted to give everyone the opportunity to roam space freely using a unique video capturing technique."
