Happy birthday, Keely. This one's for you! Klara Soderberg started writing lyrics for "Stay Gold" after reading Robert Frost's classic poem, 'Nothing Gold Can Stay.'
"I had this collection of poetry, and I thought, 'I'll open this and see if there's anything in here that inspires me,' and I came upon the line 'Nothing gold can stay,'" she said. "That was literally the first thing I saw, and it was perfect."
First Aid Kit has cancelled their summer dates due to "unforeseen medical circumstances", per their Facebook page. They also say "all will be ok" so we're going to count on that - sending all our best to Johanna and Klara and their bandmates! https://www.facebook.com/firstaidkitband/
