“‘Breathless’ was born from my very first session in LA in 2019 with Runn and Sky Adams. I was excited and a bit nervous getting out of my comfort zone (bedroom studio) and working with new people. Runn brought the idea of feeling down and not at your best but still having an optimistic and empowered outlook. I love the way the song turned out as an anthem for knowing you will be ok even when everything is not ok. Just like the other themes from the album, this one feels much more relevant in 2020.” – Slow Magic
“‘Breathless’ is a song about anxiety, and we wanted to really explore the feeling of being caught in the middle of it, and knowing you’ll make it through but not being quite there yet. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by life, especially now, and ‘Breathless’ is really talking about taking a moment to try and recognize it’s okay to stop and take a breath.” – Runn
