Per Mike Milosh of Rhye, "the sound of Spirit was born out of falling in love with playing the piano again. About a year and a half ago, my girlfriend surprised me with a borrowed piano. It wasnâ€™t in the best shape, but it made itself at home in my apartment and I started playing it every morningâ€¦ just messing around at first, but it slowly became a morning ritual I couldnâ€™t shake.
My morning piano ritual met my new piano in my favorite studio. I made a rule for myself that I would start something brand new every day, work on that for 2 hours without judgement and just see what I came up with. Out of the many sketches, Spirit started to take shape: a collection of songs that I did alone in the studio with just a piano, intertwined with collaborations with some of my favorite piano-based musicians. These are songs about love in my life, but also about the love for piano brought back into my life."
