Beautiful Day

Album: Onward and Sideways (2013)


  • This originally appeared on Radin's 2013 self-released album Wax Wings. After realizing the track had received quite a bit of play on Spotify, he decided to give it new life by incorporating guest vocals by his former tourmate, Sheryl Crow. "I didn't re-record the song, I just re-recorded the harmony with Sheryl," he told "That was something I had always longed to do because I had always been such a fan of hers. She's just such an amazing artist, singer, writer and performer."
  • Sheryl Crow did her vocals in one take over a Skype session.
  • The song soundtracks a Subaru commercial, which was released in January 2015 under the title of "2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek: Fountain."
