We Are Shangri-La (Emerald City Mix)

Album: Ember Days soundtrack (2013)


  • The song was inspired by S. J. Tucker's experiences at the Burning Man festival, which she has attended, volunteered, and performed at several times. "My most memorable experiences at Burning Man involved visiting and interacting with the various art installations, fire dancing, learning Qi Gong, and writing new songs - all completely sober," Tucker said in a Songfacts interview. "I love that desert, even though it's a very dangerous place."
