Previously speaking about his impending release, Glen admitted he “dug deep” for his new material.

“I feel I’ve really dug deep for these songs, and I’ve been chasing specific ideas asking myself, ‘What is it I’m trying to say with this line or idea?’,” said Glen.

“One would hope that through all of this that you find your voice. And, amazingly, you might find it in the smallest gesture of a song.”
