The Backfires on “Song 55:”
“This song has had so many different names since we started writing it. We couldn’t figure out what made the most sense or a title that wasn’t just totally obvious and cliche. We came to Song 55 because it was the 55th song we wrote, but we also felt that it had this devil-may-care attitude about it. These days you see artists being pressured into releasing so much content whether it be songs or videos or posting online. “Song 55” as a title is our way of saying “we’re not really interested in playing that game.”
