Songfacts®:

  • Atlanta native Raury Tullis taught himself to play guitar at the age of 11 using YouTube videos. He first gained a devoted following whilst still at high school with the release of his debut independent album, Indigo Child. The hand drawn artwork for the record is a ceiling tile painting originally done for his art class.

    Andre 3000 had Raury open for Outkast at one of their Atlanta homecoming show in September 2014. It was only the second live gig that the soulful singer-songwriter had participated in.

    Among the many heads that Raury was turning by this stage was Lorde, who asked him to pen a song for the Hunger Games: Mockingjay soundtrack. This introspective acoustic guitar led cut was his contribution.
