Sweater (single)

Christina Blust

Release date: November 1, 2009

Though some have said it sounds rather suggestive, Christina wrote this song from her strong desire to hug, or at least sit next to/fall asleep on the shoulder of people who wear soft (not scratchy) sweaters, or fleece pullovers.

Originally recorded during the Sudden Amaryllis sessions, “Sweater” didn’t quite fit the mood of the album and was put aside for the moment. But it was too good to keep hidden, so we decided a single made sense!
