"I found the cover art for Far From This World in an old photo album just a few weeks ago. I don’t know when it was taken, probably over a decade ago, but that field and the dirt road look just how I remember them as a kid. I keep thinking about that place, and how far it feels from everything in my life now. While writing and recording this album, I moved back home after the dissolution of a 3-year relationship, graduated from college, and moved again. Many things changed, fell apart, and were rebuilt.

This is the first thing I’ve recorded that doesn’t feel retrospective or past-oriented. The oldest songs on this album fill out the first half, written in the summer and winter of 2019, when things still felt normal. The latter half, however, was born from the strenuous circumstances of this year as I adjusted to a startlingly different world, both personally and at large. This feels like a transitional time, and in the face of such uncertainty we often look for an escape. That’s what this album did for me. It allowed me to get away from everything when nothing else worked. It got me through a really rough time, and honestly, in that sense its job is already over. Now I hope maybe it can do the same for you. Love you all."
