On A-side “to Perth, before the border closes”, Julia says “I’ve moved around a lot the last 5 years; chasing things, love, work, something new, whatever and there’s always this fear that I’m leaving good things behind just to go somewhere else and be lonely. Whispering ‘everything changes’ to myself helps get me to sleep at night. I started writing this song in Melbourne and finished it in Perth. It was like a little song bridge between the two cities to make the change easier.”
B-side ‘CRY’ is a Dolly Parton-inspired newbie, recorded with old friend and Perth producer Ryan Brennan.
