Listen: Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard chats the making of ‘Stay High’ on ‘Song Exploder’

Her debut solo album 'Jaime' drops this Friday

Brittany Howard was recently featured on the Thao Nguyen-hosted podcast Song Exploder where she discussed the making of “Stay High” off of her forthcoming debut solo album, Jaime.

“I knew immediately [the lyrics] were supposed to juxtapose how dreamy and playful and innocent and childlike the music was, like, to me the music is like sunlight,” Howard explains of the track. “And then I wanted for the lyrics to sound more corrupted like the voice that’s speaking has lived life.”
