When asked about the new single, Peter Wise said: “‘Sweet Solitude’ is a song about the desperation at the end of a relationship, when you know a relationship has run its course but you are holding on to what was. I really tried to draw on great soul singers like Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye to create a gospel inspired sound and longing mixed with desire. Artists like the aforementioned, D’Angelo, Prince, and Miguel are big inspirations for this record. It’s really a song about facing reality, coming to terms with finality, in whatever form that takes.”
