“I was stuck living domestically in America since escaping the 1991 Mount Pinatubo volcano eruption in The Philippines. I started feeling the need to escape life in my everyday bubble, so I recently got myself a passport and have been taking full advantage ever since. The picture on the cover art for this song was taken while I was in Aruba earlier this year.”
