Heroin

Story Behind The Song

All of the instruments are stripped away on "Heroin," with Grimes' imploring narrative stark against deep piano chords as he recalls a romance destroyed by drugs. "It was crazy what the drugs did to you/Everything they say about heroin/I know it to be true." Both Grimes and Hamilton exemplify a hard-won sobriety, and their songs pull no punches as they share. "Every song we're recorded has deep elements of heartbreak, trauma, drums, alcohol, recovery, broken homes and abuse."
