In Their Words: “‘Sweet Maria’ came out of the first writing session I had with my good friend and one of my favorite co-writers, Vinnie Paolizzi, and was the last song I wrote before the pandemic. We were tossing around ideas about murder ballads and junkie tunes, and, of all things, we settled on a pop-inspired mid tempo uplifting number. It’s a driving song, it’s a love song, it’s all the things I thought we wouldn’t write that day. But, in the end it was the song we needed. ‘Sweet Maria’ is the embodiment of all the seemingly trivial things that make spending time with your partner such a blessing. When you don’t want the day to end, you just take the long way home….” — Chris Canterbury
