As prolific songwriters first and foremost the timely release of ‘Crazy Days’ plugs into the uncertainty that is being felt across the globe right now. Speaking of their newest musical offering, Crissie said “Our song ‘Crazy Days’ seems so poignant for what is going on in our world right now. This song was originally written when we were both taking some time out after our last album. It was the first time in a long time since we had spent some quality time at home with our family and friends. Ben wrote the song out of reflection of how crazy our life often is on the road. However the words are so perfect now. Amongst all the uncertainty, normality and missing our loved ones and wishing we could be with each other but knowing that these are just the ‘crazy days’ and we will be reunited again soon”.
