Lord oh Lord is a modern hymn centered around what the 16th century monk, John of the Cross, called “The dark knight of the sole”, or what the 21th century rapper Ty Dolla $ign would call “Ego Death”. It’s about becoming, through shedding one’s own skin, and the deep anxiety this process evokes. The single goes to the heart of the upcoming album “The Flood”, which deals with the theme of death and rebirth, through the baptism of the flood. The country-influenced vocals along with the heavenly backing instrumentals helps create this atmosphere of recreation.
