I’m grateful to have the video to be reminded of this magical place and feel like the landscape captured the vibe of the song perfectly. I shall return,” he said.

“Single The Wild Life is easily the best song on this album. It remains rhythmically similar to many others, but there’s something different about it. It woke me from my sun-induced trance and made me wanna dance.” – Scene Wave
