The Way Back Home shows off Aisha Badru‘s distinctive vocals to perfection. A haunting piece of music with atmospheric acoustics and hypnotic soundscape, it embodies the idea that if you love something, set it free. The American singer-songwriter has created a compelling song with relatable lyrics and which exudes the feeling of spaciousness, trepidation and warmth. When you are listening you feel as if you are on a journey and love is pulling you towards it, pulling you home.
As you run towards the horizon
And venture out into the cold
I will keep the fire burning
To light the way back home
“When I was younger, I really needed to leave home. I moved away. I was always trying to find something better. All the things I needed to learn, I ran away from.” Aisha Badru
