In Their Words: “‘Hummingbird’ was inspired by a dream I had in which I shape-shifted into a white wolf and ran like the wind across a mountainside, overwhelmed with the beauty and the interconnectedness of all life. I knew from the start that I wanted the song and the video to feel similarly ecstatic, like a celebration of life and a reminder of how psychedelic and magical everyday life can be. I’m especially in love with the way the horn and slide guitar duets turned out for that reason. This is the first record I’ve arranged for horns and that instrumental section still gets me so excited every time I hear it!” — Lea Thomas
