Speaking about the new single, Eyedress said in a statement:
I made ‘A Room Up In The Sky’ with GRAMMY Award-winning producer John Hill at his studio in Venice earlier this year. It was one of the first instrumentals we made together. I was just showing Mac DeMarco some songs we made for my album that I’ve been working on, and when he heard the instrumental, he gave me an idea of how to sing the melody for my verses. I tried it and ended up loving it. After I tracked my vocals, John asked me if I’d be down to ask María to sing the chorus with me. After we made ‘Separate Ways,’ I asked her, and eventually she sent her vocals. Lyrically, I was talking about how my life changed for the better when I stopped doubting myself and really started believing in myself and my work. I realized I was subscribing to these negative thought patterns that didn’t serve me, and allowing myself to let go of that negativity really turned my life around and helped me become who I was meant to be.
“It was so easy and seamless working on ‘Separate Ways’ together. Everything flowed perfectly, so when Eyedress approached us to work on ‘A Room Up In The Sky’, it was a no-brainer for us,” María Zardoya added. “It was just as seamless. We have a lot of similar tastes when it comes to tones and similar approaches when it comes to creating.”
