Coming Up For Air

Album: Weatherhouse (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The Weatherhouse album has been described as Selway taking stock of his life, and this song is indicative of that. "That came out of that point of stopping at the end of 2012," he told Jam! Music. "There wasn't a schedule there that was pressing things along. And so it's kind of like a very natural time to stop and just actually, I suppose, review a couple of decades. And the song 'Coming Up For Air' was very much affirmation of being at that point, thinking, 'This is a good place to be. This is the right place to be.'"
