Angela

Album: Cleopatra (2016)
  • This tender guitar-picked tune finds Wesley Schultz singing about a small town beauty struggling to escape her past. The Lumineers vocalist wrote the song with Cleopatra producer Simone Felice during motorbike trips they took to clear their heads between takes.

    Schultz explained to The Sun: "We'd go out on the bikes and ride around and when we hit some lights, we'd stop and sing a line back at each other. He'd say his line and I'd say mine. It was like meditating on a bike. And that is how the song Angela was written. You couldn't have scripted it but it was an amazing way to write."
