“It’s the first song I’ve ever released that’s very guitar-driven,” Emily says of the track. “I’ve been playing guitar for 20 years so I really wanted to tap into my guitar roots; especially because every release prior to ‘Atta Blues’ has been so lyrically driven and I wanted to do something a little different. I’m also really proud of this song because I performed every instrument on the recording. It was a blast working with [producer] Mike McCarthy again on this. It was just him and I in his studio for three days, not really talking much, just working side by side and letting the song unfold naturally.”
