This song was written by New York-based singer, Shayna Leigh, and the producers of her debut album Drive
, Peter Zizzo and Michael Mangini. In our interview with Leigh
, she explained to us how the tune came to be. "We wrote 'Crash' shortly after 'Drive.' I was just on the upswing from what was a pretty rocky time in my life, so I think it naturally arose from that. I'm actually pretty sure that a few lines of the chorus had already been written when I joined in (which is not unusual - songs are always being written and re-written and repurposed), but it felt meant to be. I was learning to fly after having crashed. I was rebuilding my life and my sense of self after a series of heartbreaks and losses."
