Talking about the track, Blair Davie said: “I wrote ‘To Miss You’ when I was miles away from home. It was the first time I’d been apart from my family for longer than a month and I felt this heavy weight of loneliness, in a new city where I barely knew anyone. Then a couple of weeks before heading home I met someone who showed me that it’s better to love and feel all the emotions that come with that, than to never feel at all. ‘To Miss You’ is a reminder to myself that missing people and going through heartbreak, loss and finding love that makes it hurt when you’re apart can be beautiful things because they show how much we care for other humans.”
