“‘Musician’ was one of the very last songs written for Nurture,” Robinson explained in a press release. “The song is meant to feel like a celebration, like I’m reveling in the joy of newfound inspiration. If the rest of Nurture is about me trying to find hope for the future, ‘Musician’ is like a celebration of that hope materializing. It was one of the last songs that I wrote for the album, and it’s honestly a celebration of the album itself. That’s where the title comes from. It’s like, ‘Alright, I’ve found my footing, and I know I can really do this now.’ And I just tried to throw all of my rules away and have as much fun as possible. Ironically enough, this is the least sad song on the album, but this is the song that makes me cry. It’s the fun one. I just sound so happy on that song.”
Nurture, Robinson’s first album in seven years, arrives April 23 via Mom+Pop. Previously, he shared the singles ‘Get Your Wish’, ‘Something Comforting’, ‘Mirror’, and ‘Look at the Sky’, which landed on our Best New Songs segment.
