Today Chris Greenwood, better known as Manafest, tells us about the title-track from his new album "Fighter". Here is the story:
I wrote the verses to Fighter in my basement thinking about my dad and the things I'd gone through. I remember being very passionate about them with each line is write tearing up.
Two verses were written and then I didn't come back to them until months later when I was in New Zealand on tour. In my hotel room right after checking in I recorded a chorus idea "I'm a fighter". I immediately emailed that idea to my producer Seth. I then recalled the verses I had write and thought they would fit the song.
I actually cut back part of the verses to fit in the pre chorus "down and out I start to doubt I hit the ground I'm bruised but I won't break.
This song impacted my label team in Japan and they thought about the earthquake and we came up with the idea to record it in Japanese. We called the song Kimi-Wa Fighter which means "Your a Fighter" encouraging Japan not to quit since the earthquake.
I'm stoked to see this song touch so many people.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and watch the video right here!
