Singled Out: Zee Avi

Zee Avi releases her sophomore album, "Ghostbird," today. To celebrate we asked Zee to tell us about two tracks from the effort: "Swell Window" and "The Book Of Morris Johnson." Here you go!

Swell Window is the song that denotes the beginning of the next and new chapter of my never ending awakening, living, embracing hypnagogia. It also tells a tale of the meeting of two of the purest souls who understand that every ticking minute is a call for experiencing. A romantic overview of seizing the moment, capturing it, and re-visiting it.

The Book Of Morris Johnson Unlike most of the folk-art I've seen, Morris Johnson's art captures the essence of naivety and and innocence that were of a child. His words are a reminder to us that sometimes we should put our negative lens aside and see things in a different light. It isn't just about walking on the surface of the sun, it is about weighing it all out and realizing that there are more than one interpretation of any given situation. The animals that are mentioned in the song are a linear definition of that.

Hearing is believing. Listen to "The Book of Morris Johnson" right here!
