Sunny War has released a new track, ‘Higher’, which features David Rawlings. It’s taken from the Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s upcoming album Anarchist Gospel, which also includes contributions from Jim James, Allison Russell, the Raconteurs’ Jack Lawrence, and more. Listen to ‘Higher’ below.
“I wrote ‘Higher’ around this time last year, just a few days after my ex collected the last of his belongings from our apartment,” War explained in a press release. “The break up was fresh and I was thinking about all the years we spent together. I was also thinking about how much stronger I was before our relationship. I remember feeling really weak at the end… I knew it was over when I didn’t even have the energy to fight anymore. The ‘I am out of remedies, at least I’m not a liar’ lyric sums up how I felt when I knew it was really over and time to be honest about it. All I could do at that point was let go and try to figure out how to get back to whoever I was back when I respected myself. It was the same person my ex was attracted to in the first place that he unknowingly destroyed.”
