Jones co-produced and wrote the track as a reminder to himself about embracing the moment and appreciating how each plays a part in your story. “Being grateful is what this song is really about and being able to really enjoy where you’re at, from wherever you’re at,” he explains.
Addressing the polarisation and imbalances in his life growing up Jones sings, “I know it’s hard when you’re moving too fast / So smile for the moment, I wanna make this last / And I know it’s hard to get things off your mind / But you know I’m patient, so please take your time.”
CHILD OF THE STATE features the new single alongside previous tracks ‘Free’, ‘Spinning Circles’, his current Top 10 single ‘Mercy’ and US Top 5 debut ‘Take Me Away’. From the streets of Seattle to full-blown rock star, Jones has built an uncompromising sound and truth in his music. He extends that ethos here, continuing the same creative legacy of his hometown’s greatest forces such as Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden.
