This optimistic track is supported by a relaxed instrumental and lived-in lyrics offering plenty of substance. Dixon and Morton each discuss how fatigued they are regarding the countless headlines and posts of terrible news. Even so, they sing with a sense of hopefulness, lying in wait for the nearing silver lining.
Following his Best Gospel Album (Gospel According to PJ) win at this year’s Grammys, Morton spoke with Rated R&B about the difference between creating a gospel and R&B album. Revisit the conversation here.
Later this year, Dixon is joining Ledisi for The Wild Card U.S. Tour.
