Deeply personal and introspective, ‘This Dream’ was inspired by an intense and vivid dream Panther had about his now ex-partner.
“It was the height of summer and we had only just met. We knew the only way we could continue was to do long distance. The night before we separated to go back to our normal lives, I had a dream that we were married. When the dream ended and I was still half asleep, I picked up my phone, wrote down a couple of keywords before I fell back asleep. It was a strange, mystical dream and I didn’t know how to tell him. Instead of telling him, I wrote this song in the morning sun of my porch.”Jack Panther
