We got a chance to hear Allen perform this song live a couple of months back at a showcase we attended for him, and he also spoke out about it in the interview we did with him. Here’s what he had to say:
Allen Stone: I feel like there are a lot of people like me who just want pure music and music that comes from people’s hearts and they know they’re going through. For example, I sing this song called “Contact High” about getting caught up in all of these digital conversations and not having that eye to eye face to face conversation. I’m really going through this and hopefully you can see that in my eyes when I sing the song because it’s real.
