“Take Back Thy Gift,” and “Of Him I Love Both Day and Night” were produced by Andrea and her brother and collaborator David. “Of Him I Love Both Day And Night,” is an introductory vignette, incorporating poetry that has inspired Andrea and evoking a feeling of expectancy. As is often the case with her work, “Take Back Thy Gift,” has deep literary references. “I stumbled upon this Tennyson poem called ‘Tithonus,’ and I thought the words were beautiful,” she says of the song. “Then I read the Greek story of Tithonus and discovered this is a story about a man who was cursed to live forever. This story felt like an ancient cautionary tale that I wanted to breathe new life into.”
