'Starlight' is a song that I wrote, actually, after seeing a picture of Ethel and Bobby Kennedy when they were seventeen. I saw this picture about a year and a half ago and I didn't know anything about, like, what they were doing or what was going on in the picture, but I just thought 'they look like they're having the best night'. And so I wrote this song about what the night might've been like. And I ended up meeting Ethel and going and playing for and she just loved it. It was such a fun moment when she was just in love with the song and so happy about it. And it's just this adorable picture that, to me, just brought forth all these potentials for how that night could have been.
THE RED BOOK || (part 3)“Maybe I’ll write a whole album about that kind of love if I ever find it. But this album is about the other kids of love that I’ve recently fallen in and out of. Love that was treacherous, sad, beautiful, and tragic. But most of all, this record is about love that was red.”
