Songfacts®:

  • As with the rest of The Lost Mystique Of Being In The Know, the band's ninth studio album, "Silver" was recorded during an intense period. It was the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as serious civil unrest that swept over the country over issues of police brutality and political division.
  • When Songfacts talked to Rising Appalachia's Chloe Smith, who founded the band with her sister Leah Song, Smith said that "Silver" is about, "Grace and maturation and remaining glorious in all your chapters. Nostalgia and looking back at one's self through the tempest of time."
