The track was recorded with good friend Aloe Blacc who helped Lyrics Born through the strenuous process of putting the emotions to song, “This was by far the hardest song I’ve ever written in my career. I had a very hard time opening up about the concept with Aloe Blacc, and when he sent me the chorus he wrote and recorded, I just cried. He captured my feelings so accurately, it floored me.”
Lyrics Born continues, “We are blessed to be in remission now, but with that demon looming, you are never totally at ease in life. Seeing it through successfully gives you the confidence that no obstacle is insurmountable when you have spiritual grounding, love and support from the people that matter to you. If nothing else, that is what I want people to take away from this song. Hope.”
“Can’t Lose My Joy” is a track off of Lyrics Born’s upcoming album Quite A Life, out this Friday September 14, 2018 on Mobile Home Recordings. The album features Aloe Blacc, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Chali 2na, Gift of Gab, and many more.
