In Their Words: “‘Mind for Leaving’ was written and recorded in January, which feels like approximately 800 years ago at this point. In between tour dates, we holed up in a cabin outside of Point Pleasant, West Virginia (home of the Mothman, Shawnee leader Hokoleskwa and Mister Bee Potato Chips). No one was socially distancing yet, but given the set and setting, it felt like we got an early jump on it. Like most Januarys, I remember the days being brief, gray and severe. I finished the song while the mics were getting placed and we arranged and tracked it that same afternoon. It was just the way my band and I like to work: quickly, without distractions and, hopefully, no cell phone service.” — William Matheny
