"I wrote this song for my dear friend, a kindred spirit who ventured back to the sky world after a long and courageous battle with cancer. This song and its visuals are a commemoration of our last visit together, during which we embraced our mutual fears for the road ahead as much as we celebrated the beauty and mystery life offers. My hope is to convey the importance of not getting stuck in the despair of loss through celebrating those who have transitioned on and honouring every facet of life’s journey from birth to death. Sweet Tuesday is my contribution to the ethos of healing and embracing every emotion along the way." - iskwē
