Joe Wong on “Day After Day:”

“The lyric came to me after I read an article arguing that traumatic memories can be encoded in DNA and passed down from generation to generation. Whether or not that’s true, I wanted to explore the notion that many of our personality traits and life choices that we attribute to free will may, in fact, be beyond our control. This track features an English Horn solo by Claire Brazeau (LA Chamber Orchestra), partly as homage to my ‘labelmate’ and hero Marianne Faithfull, who famously used oboe on her hit “As Tears Go By.””
