“This is the most Jared Pellerin Album I’ve ever made,” Pell said of the LP in a press statement. “It’s truly authentic to who I am and the relationships/stories of people I care about. The first Floating While Dreaming project was a dedication to leaving school to pursue my dreams of making it in the music industry… FWD II asks the question ‘does success = satisfaction?’ And goes more in depth with some struggles I’ve had living and loving in LA.”
As a first listen, “Flight” arrives as “a record about wanderlust,” according to Pell. “Green lights/ Good weed/ Get high/ No strings,” he sing-raps over the song’s funky bassline before his Dave B joins him for the second verse.
