TUNE Emily Barker - Sunrise
I wrote this song when I was on a road trip through Sweden. I was sleeping in my car and doing what I call a “slow-tour”, when you have equal part holiday and shows. It was the peak of summer and the light was gorgeous; long lasting and gentle. There is so much water in Sweden; so many lakes and beautiful beaches; you feel like you’re on the edge of the world when you’re that far north. Sunrise is a song about escaping and it seemed very fitting to record it in Memphis, with the road trip being such a feature in American literature, music and popular culture.
