In Their Words: "I spent this album talking about my own identity, and the politics defining it. I keep coming back to this idea that change – on the political level – is hard to come by. For 'Try,' I brought that idea to the personal level, and this fear I have of complacency. I wrote this tune after seeing an older couple in a restaurant not say a word to each other their entire dinner. And I got freaked out that age would lead to complacency and suck any excitement out of life. I swore in that moment that if I ever realized I was that set in my ways, I would find a way to change and inject some life into my life." — Naseem Khuri
