Last month, Paste gave you a free download of “Never Going Back,” a track from Samantha Crain’s forthcoming album Kid Face. The track itself exemplifies the kinds of heartfelt lyrics for which Crain has been lauded since the beginning of her career.
Kid Face will be Crain’s third full-lenth. She recorded the album with the help of producer John Vanderslice, and it is set for release on Ramseur Records on Feb. 19.
As with many of Crain’s lyrically complex tracks, a listen sparks many questions about the song’s origin. You can catch Crain in the video below, explaining the lyrics as they relate to her experiences and intentions.
