This Fun New Switchfoot Song Was Inspired By A Horrific Email
One of the most fun songs on the new album is “Float” but Jon shares how it was inspired by an email that was very difficult to read.
The song was actually inspired by my friend in Iraq who runs an organization called Preemptive Love. So, “Float” was a response to an email that he sent me. He sent me an email that the village next to him, where he lives with his family, was bombed by ISIS…
So for me when I don’t have words, often times I’ll turn to song…
And so I thought, what if I could give him and his family a song that would make them dance and remind them that they’re there for a purpose and there’s nothing that’s going to bring them down.
