“We are simply dirt, water, and air animated by the sun for a particle moment; we will all soon be gone,” Ainsworth said of the song in a statement. “What is the legacy we leave behind if we keep hurting and devaluing other people’s existences? This song is about my hope for meaning beyond what feels like a nihilistic world order, one that turns a blind eye to injustice and abuse to each other and the planet.”

Sparkles & Debris drops May 21.
