When speaking with GGfien about the new title TRAUMA, he added, “my phone just broke, so while I was unboxing my new one, the hook just came to me. I just finished going out with someone that didn’t work out, so I wasn’t in the mood to dwell and write a song about my perspective of dating in today’s society. I thought to myself, I don’t want to have to write another song about relationships yet, but every time I went to work on one song, my brain immediately brought me to TRAUMA; and I’m glad it did.”
