This song, Back to Life, was written by a dear friend of mine from the four months I spent in Cape Town, South Africa this year. Rachael and I spent an unforgettable weekend together in a township called Ocean View, and we continued to bond for the rest of the semester over our love of English, late night coffee, the University’s weekly jazz shows, and interesting people. I came across this song on her Facebook, and was amazed by its stunningly haunting quality. It is beautiful and thoughtful and I can’t wait to have it stuck in my head for the rest of this week. I hope you all enjoy!
