Singled Out: Hannah Miller's Fighting

Hannah Miller releases her brand new self-titled album today (May 5th) and to celebrate we asked her to tell us the story behind "Fighting," one of the songs on the album. Here is the story:

We had wrapped up tracking all the songs for the new record, and were about to move on to mixing, when I was asked by a generous supporter if I would consider writing a song for her, inspired by her own story, and put it on the record, in exchange for her financing the whole record! It was an offer I could not refuse...

So, I was under somewhat of a time crunch since we had wrapped up everything else and I needed to write and record one more song real quick. I wrote it while down in Florida for an awesome festival called 30A Songwriters Festival. I remember sitting out on the balcony of our condo, looking at the ocean, and praying that I would just be hit with something good! I wanted to give this supporter a song that really reflected her story, but was still true to what I would naturally write and sing.

This song is what came out, and it ended up being one of my very favorite songs on the record! The first line, "Love, don't you hurt so much," I felt like opened the song up to be about her experience, while at the same time, universal and something we all have felt and could relate to - so that helped me take the song in a direction that was true to her story and to a lot of others as well.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
