As “Love Me More” was written before the pandemic, lyrics like “If I could keep myself at home” have a different meaning than what they want now, but I kept it on the album because I found that some of the sentiments not only remained the same, but were emphasized by the lock.
“Love Me More” went through the most returns of all the songs on the album. It’s very fast, very slow, and at one point, it’s an old style of country song. In the end, I think because we were watching The Exorcist, we thought of Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’ and experimented with floating an ostinato over the chorus. As we continued to adjust the ostinato to fit the chord developments, we began to hear how the track sounded.
