In Their Words: “For me, ‘Always, Joni’ is about how a great song at the right time can break your heart in the best kind of way. I always sing it with a bit of joy mixed amongst the sadness, because Joni [Mitchell]’s music truly does break my heart and I can’t help but love it every time.” — Lauren

“I was going through a terrible heartbreak when we wrote this song. The thought of knowing that this person was going on living their life without the thought of me filled me with such a complicated emotion, I couldn’t see outside the pain. To me, ‘Always, Joni’ is a the release of suffering through the strength of honesty.” — Georgia

“When you have a band with three songwriters, you end up having certain songs that pull from an experience you yourself haven’t gone through. ‘Always, Joni’ feels like a song that doesn’t quite belong to me, but I can feel the pain that the three of us have collectively shared about, as well as all the joy and love and loss and pain that bleed out of Joni’s songs. To me, this song is a dedication to both Lauren and Georgia, and to Joni.” — Quinn
