Unseren Freunden von drownendinsound.com erzählte Lissie zum neuen Song folgendes:
„Hero“ is one of those rare songs that came to me all at once. I was at my old house in Ojai, California one evening just getting some things done around the place & it poured out of me! I’d been thinking about duality, Schrödinger’s cat, parallel realities & just this general idea of being simultaneously a huge success & failure and what I want my life to look like. Shortly after I bought a farm in NE Iowa, and between tours I am living there!
