Freedom Without Freedom is track 9 on Signs of Purity. It is one of the three tracks I have recorded this year as opposed to the other 7, which were finished last year. The few lyrics it has are inspired by a theme that I think about a lot, which is also the subject of a recent book written by the American philosopher Sam Harris. It’s the idea that although we feel free to do what we want, there is always something that happens uncontrollably inside our brains that influences our decisions before we make them. It’s a hotly debated topic, but thought-provokingly fascinating nonetheless.
