Let It Out

Album: Fading West (2014)
  • This song finds vocalist Jon Foreman reflecting on his love of singing. He explained on the Land Of Broken Hearts website: "I sing because of joy. For me the joy far outweighs the risk of failure. Joy is the motivation for my songs. Even in a song of anger, or mourning the loss of a friend- I find joy in expressing the isolated seas within me- bringing them to the surface with a melody or a word. Often the communal experience that exists when we play our songs live, finds its beginnings in lonely isolation."
  • Bassist Tim Foreman commented in a Spotify track-by-track: "This song is a party. It's just… you can't listen to it and not smile. I can't. It reminds me of summertime."
