All your love is the second track on the record. Close to a year ago, Matt showed me a demo of the song that sounds quite different than the final version. Originally the current pre-chorus part (“All your love I’m never giving up on…”) was the chorus and the verses were completely different.
We both knew we liked parts of the song, but weren’t quite sold. We sat on the scratch demo for a while and let the tune incubate.
A few months went by and Matt had started to think that the verse vocals could be stronger. One night we sat down to casually jam on the tune. I stumbled across the current chorus hook and suggested adding it as an instrumental section. He knew it was catchy, and suggested making it a vocal hook rather than an instrumental hook. The big “All your loooooveee” chorus was born.
We were both stoked on the hook and intertwined it throughout the second demo. I added some bass lines and Matt re-wrote the verses. We both felt like the wordier verses complimented the soaring chorus nicely.
When we went in to the studio to record the tune, our producers had a few ideas to help improve the flow of the jam. We cut the first pre-chorus in half and jumped to the bridge section a bar sooner. Initially I was reluctant to the changes. After hearing a tune one way for a while it’s easy for any changes to sound jarring. This wasn’t the first time that I had encountered this problem, so I kept my mouth shut and sat on the changes for a few days. Ultimately I think the subtle differences added a lot.
