In Their Words: “‘Heart of Gold’ is a cry out to my younger self to stay strong and to survive the moment as I’m blacking out from an abusive beating. As a child I used to be so ashamed of my scars but I look at them as purification by fire. They are a source of pride and a reminder that gold is purified by fire. Grant [Claire, the video’s director] is so intuitively empathic, a really tender soul who understood the emotions and importance of this song for me. This collaboration turned into something intimate and magical. The idea was to capture three different performances to emulate the mind, body and soul, as well as the three ages of man — infancy, childhood and old age.

“This song means so much to me because it is the first song I ever wrote. It is sort of like an anchor for me and working on this song was such a breath of fresh air because I got to work alongside some of my favorite collaborators. I loved producing it alongside Matt Pence who is a wonderful human being and producer and beyond that, he is a great listener. I long for people who are great listeners. There have been so many different demo versions of this song and this one feels the purest and I’m excited for people to hear a glimpse of the album. This is a thank you to fans that have been following me from the beginning because they know this song and yet it hasn’t been accessible for them to listen to anywhere.” — Abraham Alexander
