JR says, ‘”Bleed” is the existential rock song that circles around a story told by so many artists and musicians that have sought the magic of a muse to stimulate them, inspire them, love them, hate them and otherwise make them feel alive. The good, the bad and the lovely really. When writing this track I set out to create a song that had a heavy rock element with a bit of a dance in its step. A bit of an emotional rollercoaster meant to be played loud.”
“Bleed” was produced by Gregory Darling at 2 Lions Studios and written by JR smith.
