Gustav Wood, lead singer of Young Guns, recalls while writing the song, “I remember sitting at a piano in the house that John and Fraser’s parents own, and we were about to head off to New York in a few days to demo up some songs . . . We had a pretty solid instrumental of the song that would become “Daylight” but nothing vocally that really worked.” He continued stating, “John added a string section after the first chorus, Cellos, and for some reason it felt really evocative, like a little moment of clarity or realization in all the noise of the song, and I thought of the first light in the morning coming through the windows after a long dark night. I sang over it “All we need is daylight” and recorded it on my phone. When I showed the others, everyone really liked it, and from that little five-second moment, the whole song developed.”
Pre-order the full album and purchase “Daylight” on iTunes or stream it on Spotify or YouTube.
