Now 26, he’s excised the trappings of a youth run wild and all but killed the ego that can undermine the evolution of an artist. “Take the blade from my hand and do what I can’t: cut me down,” Lopez pleads in the slow-burning “Tanglin’.”

He doubles down on that sentiment of transformation in the brooding title track: “I’m gonna go to the woods and come out the other side,” he sings over and over again like a mantra.
“This album is a product of the strength I had to walk away from everything I knew,” Lopez says. “I had to start fresh on my own.”
“If I want my music to last in the world, I have to stay as authentic as possible, and that means not compromising or being boxed in.

That also applies to just being a human. Wherever that leads me, I’m sure that’ll be the place that I was meant to be, both musically and mentally.”– Christian Lopez
