• Away


“Away” is a song about coming to terms with lost love after a breakup, as Littauer describes. “To me, this is a beautiful love song with a very melancholic twist. It’s on one hand describing the love that was there, and on the other hand, the love that is gone and how hard it is to miss who used to be your best friend. Suddenly this one person is not part of your life anymore, going from being everything to nothing. It’s about realizing that and dealing with it as well as you can.

Life is moving on with or without him, Littauer realized while recording “Away” in the familiarity of his childhood home:

Everything was recorded on a hot, humid, rainy summer day in the attic in my parents’ house in the countryside. When I think about this day I get this super melancholic feeling in my stomach that I usually get when I isolate myself for a period of time. It hurts but it’s so beautiful. There’s also something about going back to your childhood and remembering feelings and smelling smells that does that to me. It tells me that life is moving on, and it has for me too.
