In Their Words: “‘Rise Up Again’ is one of the songs inspired by the places, characters, and situations in my grandfather Fred Starr’s novel, Of What Was, Nothing Is Left. This song found its way into the new project by way of a very vivid dream I had while in the hospital for surgery in August of 2018. My father and grandfather came to me in that dream as if to tell me that things would be all right despite the life-threatening nature of my medical situation. I sent a rough draft demo to John Oates with a brief narrative about the song. He took it to another level with his arrangement and sensitive lyrical additions. The song has come to feel almost anthemic when I play it. It feels inexorably connected to the book and to the whole journey of making this record.” — David Starr
