“Highway Friend” is Tyler Bryan on guitar; Nate Bergman on guitar and vocals; Per Wiberg on bass, organ, mellotron, and piano; Tobbe Strandvik on drums; and Deborah Bond and Rona Rawls on vocals.
The “Highway Friend” video was directed by Tyler Bryant. The lonesome wail of an electric guitar sometimes sounds exactly like loneliness of being out on the road, and that’s precisely what’s captured by Nate Bergman in his arrangements. You’ll feel like you’ve just left town and it’s in your rearview mirror. How is this magic possible? I don’t know, it just is.
The song is a word for word reflection on my first ever experience with the psychedelic drug DMT. It was a life altering deep dive into my own conciseness – and the lyrics are a reflection of what I experienced and envisioned. The lasting effects were deeply profound and altered the way I look at life forever. — Nate Bergman
