Did <Speech_Music_Female> that for me <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Female> Brian. <Speech_Female> They really killed <Speech_Female> it. They really nailed <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> the song. They <Speech_Female> added the flavor <Speech_Music_Female> that needed. They <Speech_Female> made the words <Speech_Female> more meaningful <Speech_Female> and and <Speech_Female> and they made sure every <Speech_Female> line mattered. <Speech_Female> You know <Speech_Female> and that's so <Speech_Female> important with songwriting. <Speech_Female> I always try <Speech_Female> to like be a line <Speech_Female> or see. <Speech_Female> If there's something I <Speech_Female> can do better <Speech_Female> or word that <Speech_Female> can choose. It's <Speech_Female> that's better or the rhyme <Speech_Female> scheme. Make it more clever <Speech_Female> and they did <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> that especially with the <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> beat a much <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> happier with it <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> if feels like <Speech_Music_Female> a classic <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Female> kind of rb <Speech_Female> Song. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> The cords are very <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Female> unique but <Speech_Female> they're very <Speech_Female> classic and <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> think that the melody <Speech_Female> is so new <Speech_Female> but it could have <Speech_Female> been done <Speech_Female> in a different time <Speech_Female> in a and I think <Speech_Female> you know. The Guitar <Speech_Female> is a lot more <Speech_Female> raw on the record. <Speech_Female> And I think <Speech_Female> this album <Speech_Female> making is <Speech_Female> is a lot <Speech_Female> more organic. <Speech_Female> And it's a lot more <Speech_Female> raw but <Speech_Female> it's still <Speech_Female> elevated <Speech_Female> in it's still <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> those melodies <Speech_Female> that <Speech_Female> Kinda catch you off <Speech_Music_Female> guard. I know <Speech_Female> the song <Speech_Female> is going to be crazy <Speech_Female> when I get on my <Speech_Music_Female> gin <SpeakerChange> <Music> the studio <Music> <Music> <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Female> well. <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> never thought <Speech_Female> that I would ever have <Speech_Female> the chance to do <Speech_Female> this.
