”Since this is such a delicate subject, I tried my best to not come off as preachy. Everyone has their own path. I also didn’t want it to be a downer. I really love the way a lot of Motown and Stax recordings were tackling these heavy subjects but masking them with upbeat tempos that were in major keys with big harmonies. I wanted to do the same with Borrowed Smiles. It’s a party song about getting sober.”
