On "Walk Away," the plush electronic ballad from Toronto producer Birthday Boy, the vocals intone a regretful distance: I'll take the coward's way out/ And live in your mind. The track's video, premiering above, works with this theme into scenes of a couple spending time together, with one of the figures nearly erased into the background. Speaking with The FADER over email, Birthday Boy revealed how "Walk Away" is new creative territory for him: "I'm kind of sensitive about this one because I don't normally sing solo on my tracks. I tried to create an atmosphere and then disappear into it. It's about how someone perceives you after you leave their life."
