About the Album

"Slipping Out" is a playful and fun song that tells the story of delicately and politely breaking away from a situation, whether professional, personal, conversational, or metaphorical. The song emphasizes the importance of honoring one's own boundaries and finding space for oneself. It describes a scene reminiscent of a 1960s movie, with the narrator trying to slip out of a crowded lounge or bar without being noticed. The lyrics capture the careful navigation and plotting involved in making a quiet and clean exit. The song also references the idea of letting go of work-related responsibilities and embracing a sense of relaxation and naturalness. Ultimately, the song celebrates the successful accomplishment of the mission to slip out successfully and deftly, and to be free.
