“I thought it best to start the journey this way,” Williams said of he EP, “Some real heavy themes…let’s get this carthasis today, people.”
In an interview for Apple Music, Williams explained that she had suicidal thoughts and that her dog helped her get through those problems. “Because life is still hard,” she said “It didn’t become a breeze overnight or anything and it’s been years and it’s still not a breeze, but it’s so rich and now that I’m taking account of all these feelings and I’m feeling all of them, there’s this beautiful rainbow versus just the deep end.”
